Are you upset because you cannot afford to buy your child new shoes for school, or obtain other necessities he or she needs? The child support process can be daunting, especially if it is your first experience in child support collection. If you are a single parent trying to get support from the other parent, there are resources available.
A child support enforcement agency is an organization that helps custodial parents get their child support entitlement. Government agencies are sometimes unhelpful. The truth is, in some states, the government child support enforcement agency only enforces child support mandates in cases in which a family is receiving state aid. The money collected then goes into the government coffers to offset the money received by the custodial parent.
An independent agency is sometimes your best solution for fast results. There are benefits to having someone else with the authority, power and experience to help you out. An independent agency can assist you in most any state where you live. A good child support collection agency will assign a team of child support enforcement specialists to help you. The specific laws differ from state to state, but the general procedures are similar. Many independent child support agencies have countrywide facilities and can immediately access specialists that are familiar with your specific state laws regarding the collection process in order to maximize your results.
Most agencies keep their clients informed with updates regarding their case and work hand in hand with the clients in order to fully understand their specific situation and personal history.
Many government child support agencies are overloaded and understaffed. On the other hand, an independent agency will handle your case on an individual basis and a personal level, in order to get the best results possible and maximize child support payments. In many cases it is even possible to obtain back payments for you. Independent agencies fight for the rights of their clients and make every effort to get their clients the money they deserve.
The enforcement laws are different in each state, and depending on where you live you may also be entitled to interest on unpaid child support payments.Do your research and choose the right independent agency. Many agencies have years of experience helping custodial parents through the myriad of problems that can surface when local government child support resources are unreliable or ineffective.
When blogger Sarah Daskin was looking for child support services in Texas, she thoroughly researched the different agencies online. She found exactly what she was looking for and was extremely pleased with the Support Collectors child support help she received.
Just in case you missed the show (like me, lol), I’m including a few key points from the People report, which were noted during a game of “Never Have I Ever” played on the show.
Madonna didn’t shy away from getting risqué, asking about the game paddles: “Can we spank each other with these?”Both singers admitted they’d fooled around in a bathroom during a party, gotten frisky while someone else was in the room andforgotten the name of a hookup. (Also for the record: Bieber has dated siblings but insists he hasn’t had phone sex.)DeGeneres – who only copped to a little bathroom action – joked, “You two are perfect for each other!”
Madonna cozily leaned in for a cuddle with Bieber and said, “I feel like I’m getting to know my new boyfriend.”The flirtation continued the theme of Madonna’s taste for younger men, which DeGeneres brought up just before the game began. (See the full story at People.com)
I’m not sure how I feel about this one. On the one hand, to each his or her own – and the older I get, the more I realize that age is just a number. So on that side of things, maybe it’s not a big deal. Obviously Madonna’s not planning on having any Bieber babies, right? So a fling is a fling – who are we to judge two grown adults?
On the flip side, there are those who would frown on this deal for the most obvious reason – the age difference.
If you don’t find yourself feeling disgusted by it, would you feel the same if it were an older man dating a younger woman? Say it were the 56-year-old Prince and the 21-year-old Ariana Grande? Would that be different for you, or the same? Why?
