Children in separated families deserve the same support and care that children in other families receive. However, it is not always easy for a single parent to provide this. The child support system aims to ensure that children still receive the financial support they need regardless of their family arrangement. Unfortunately, these payments are not always made on time, if at all, and this can be of serious detriment to the child in question.
When disputes involve matters concerning the care of someone's children, they can often become heated and drawn out. Most parents want the best for their child, but their opinions on what that is may differ from those of the other parent. One of the common causes of such disputes in South Carolina is child support. While a parent may be struggling to make ends meet because payments have been missed, they may still feel hesitant to pursue the matter in the courts.
