One of the most vexing problems for divorcing Californians is ensuring the payment of child support by the non-custodial spouse. Often, the custodial parent relies on the child support payments to pay a substantial portion of the child’s expenses and an approved percentage of household expenses. If the child support payments do not arrive on time, or if they are less than the full amount, the custodial parent may be unable to buy food or pay essential household expenses or provide food for the family. Fortunately, California law provides a collection mechanisms that can often be effective in ensuring the timely and complete payment of child support.
