The process of filing child support cases can be daunting for many people.
If you have kids, it can be intimidating.
The IRS requires a minimum of two years of joint financial responsibility to file a claim.
That can be a long time, especially for people with very young children.
But for people who don’t have kids yet, filing child supports can be an added hassle.
If you and your ex-spouse are not filing together, it’s a bit of a bummer.
You’ll need to hire a lawyer to handle the child support and alimony issues.
And the IRS can take some time to determine the extent of the support owed.
Once the IRS is done reviewing your child support claim, they may not have the resources to provide the support you want.
To get a handle on child support in your state, check out the Child Support Calculation Tool (CSCT).
CSCTs can help you calculate child support amounts for a specific situation.
It’s also a good way to track your payments.
If you’re having trouble with child support payments, the federal government can help.
The federal government’s Child Support Enforcement and Compliance Unit (CSECU) can help with a child support order.
If your ex is in trouble with the law, you may want to speak with a lawyer.
