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.
