How to Collect the Child Support You're Owed 
 
by Cheryl Morrissette June 10, 2005

Children have a right to the physical, emotional, and financial support of both parents. When one parent stops contributing financially to a child's upbringing, the child suffers. Many techniques and types of agents are available to help parents get the child support they and their children are owed.

Raising children is challenging. It is also rewarding, fascinating, and exhilarating, but it is always challenging. Single parents have a tougher job than people who parent in tandem, because they have nobody in the home with whom to share the work of nurturing, teaching, and disciplining the child.

When single parents do not receive the child support they are due, the job of parenting alone becomes even tougher. Their budgets can become stretched so thin that the custodial parent goes without proper nourishment in order to provide for the child, or must live in substandard housing in a less-than-safe neighborhood. Child support is a right of the child, and it takes both parents to meet a child's financial needs.

When the noncustodial parent refuses to pay court-ordered child support, the child always suffers. For children's sake, federal and state governments have made it possible for parents to collect back child support that is owed. It's becoming easier to locate deadbeat parents, and to make them pay the child support that they owe.
