Ensuring You Receive Your Child Support Payments

Posted on in Child Support

Illinois child support lawyersIn the aftermath of a divorce, both parties have a lot to contemplate: where will I live, will I be financially comfortable, what will happen to my children? In a large number of divorce cases involving children, one parent is granted primary custody of the children involved. For most of the parents granted primary custody of their children, receiving child support payments from their former spouse can make all the difference in ensuring a healthy financial future.

Tragically, less than 70% of all child support payments owed, are actually received by the spouse in need. If you are owed child support payments and your former spouse is unwilling to comply, it may be time to consider seeking the help of a team of legal professionals.

U.S. Child Support Statistics

In 2013 alone, over $32 billion in child support were owed to primary custody parents, throughout the United States. While many people falsely believe that child support payments are incredibly high and can be crippling to the spouse making the payments, the average annual child support payment is approximately $5,775, per year. That ultimately results to less than $500 per month in child support payments. Child support payments can make the ultimate difference in a child’s life, but many parents neglect to do their part. According to the United States Census Bureau, one in four primary custody parents awarded child support never receive the payments they are owed.

What You Can Do

Here in the state of Illinois, The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services' Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) can help ensure that you receive the child support payments you are owed. Through either seizure of bank accounts, wage garnishment, or even criminal prosecution, the DCSS has a number of means through which they can work to ensure that you receive your payments.
