It’s that time again when child support is even more important. Some things to know about child support during the holidays to help you better prepare.
- Payments may be late during the holidays.
- Payments that arrive are still being processed each day but we will have more bank and mail holidays.
- The absent parent may miss work for vacation or the holidays.
- The employer may miss days and not send out the payment until they return.
We suggest you try to plan for any issues. This is not always easy because you still have your normal expenses. Don’t panic if your payment is late. Missed payments almost always makes up after the New Year.
This is one of the busiest times of year for all child support agencies as custodial parents may be checking on payments more or calling to file for support. You may want to wait for case updates until a later date. Child Support Agencies get many calls right before Christmas with people filing for support in hopes to get in time. The best time to file is NOW to receive support by Christmas. You may file with us on the link below.
I can still remember not having any presents under the tree one Christmas when I was little. CSS will do everything possible to make sure that does not happen to you. Our yearly Christmas contest will be posted on FB soon.
