Child support is supposed to go from one parent to the other to help support the child’s needs. The custodial parent can use this money to pay for school items, clothing, food, shelter, and the like. Unfortunately, some non-custodial parents do not take the court order seriously. These individuals sometimes avoid paying child support by elusive methods. Government agencies either do not have the resources or do not have the compassion to properly locate and enforce the obligations set forth in the decrees. Some agencies will do no more than report the defaulted parent to the credit bureau every month. While this move could cause a tad bit of disturbance for someone who cares about credit rating, it does not do much to a deadbeat parent with an already existing poor credit rating. A child support enforcement agency can fill in the gaps where the government agencies stop helping. This kind of organization can make a huge difference to a person who has not been successful collecting child support.
A child support enforcement agency can be a little more aggressive and investigative than the government agencies. Such an agency has the work force and the resources to locate a non-paying parent in the strangest places. This organization will stretch far beyond a government agency’s reaching, because its sole purpose is to get results. A support enforcement agency is in business to get the custodial parent his or her money. Many clients have attested that they saw results within weeks of getting in touch with an agency. Receiving money in a few weeks is amazing considering that some parents are still trying to collect thousands of dollars and have been waiting for years. Since results are what a custodial parent needs, an enforcement agency is the right solution.
Getting a child support enforcement agency on the scene is very simple. The first step in the process is completing an online form. The online form will ask for information about the custodial parent, the non-custodial parent and the existing court order. Next, the applicant will send documentation of the child support order. Shortly thereafter, the agency will create a contract for the custodial parent to sign. After the parties sign the contract, the process of locating the non-custodial parent and collecting child support begins. The agency will use a mixture of the information provided by the custodial parent and thoroughly researched information to locate the non-custodial parent. It will use strategic methods to collect the back child support. Once the agency gets the payments, it will send the funds directly to the custodial parent.
