Child support, child custody, child care assistance and child smile are the three types of child support the government collects from each of its citizens.
Child support is a form of child maintenance.
Child maintenance is what you pay your ex-spouse or ex-boyfriend every month.
Child custody is when your ex has the right to live with you.
Child care assistance is for people with young children.
It’s a government program that provides free care to people who cannot work due to illness or injury.
And Child smile is the government program for people who work and want to see their children grow up to be adults.
But it’s not enough to just have your child support payment.
You need to pay it, too.
If you’re in the labor force, you’re not going to get it.
Child welfare agencies have been warning that, despite the best efforts of the federal government, you may not get child support payments in a timely manner.
In fact, if you’re on disability or receiving some other type of support, your federal benefits may not be going out to you.
You may have been paying your ex for years, even decades, but now the government is saying you’re going to be on disability for decades.
“We’ve got to get you off the disability rolls and get you back on the rolls,” says Linda Toney, senior staff attorney with the Center for Women in Government.
Toney says this is not the way the government should treat people with disabilities.
“The idea is to get people back to work and to provide them with the support they need,” she says.
It should be up to the states to make sure people can get back to the workforce and get the support that they need.
“They’re going back to school.
They’re going out and they’re getting jobs, so they need to get back in the job market,” says Toney.
Some states have taken the federal funding issue a step further.
“Some states are asking, we don’t want to pay child support, but we don�t want to be dependent on you and you are dependent on us,” says Liza Alcorn, a former president of the National Association of Social Workers.
In other states, lawmakers have also called for more help.
In California, lawmakers passed a bill that would require that if a child support order is not paid within 30 days, the state will stop paying the order.
Alcorn says this kind of “reward” is “not right” because people need help to pay the order, not to go back to their parents.
“If you don’t get support, the parent has to do the work, and that’s not right,” she explains.
Alacond is a member of the Coalition to Protect Families and Children, which represents families and children affected by child support programs.
The Coalition has also filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration, arguing that it’s unconstitutional to require states to help people who are on disability to get paid.
In its case, the coalition argues that federal law doesn’t require states that are on the disabled rolls to provide those disabled people with the benefits they need, and is instead creating a financial incentive for states to ignore the law.
The coalition is asking the court to reverse that decision and say that the child support statute must be rewritten so that it doesn’t impose on people on disability who are also on disability that burden of paying child support.
“This isn’t just about disability, it’s about people on the payroll,” says Alcorn.
“And if people are on payroll, they should get child care and they should be paid for that child care, not for a child.”
“You need to have some sort of relationship between you and the state,” she said.
“That should be in the agreement.
That shouldn’t be in a court order.”
What can you do?
Toney points out that you can apply to the court for the child maintenance order, the child visitation order, or the child custody order.
“Once you get the court order, you have to follow it and pay the child,” she advises.
But, if your ex doesn’t pay the Child Maintenance order, your child can’t go to school, and you won’t get the child.
“It’s not like a child is going to stay home and be the sole breadwinner,” says Talia.
“So you’re left with two options: you can either pay the entire child support or you can make a lump sum payment to the state.
The state is going after you for that money.
So, if the state won’t pay you the child care or visitation order or child custody and child maintenance, there are other options. “
There are things that you could do, but you have no control over the amount of money that you have in your bank account,” she adds.
So, if the state won’t pay you the child care or visitation order or child custody and child maintenance, there are other options.
Tony says there are a number of ways you can help.
