How is Child Support Determined?
Child support payments can be determined privately or by the courts. Once an agreement has been made, or the courts have authorized which party makes the payments, the amount and how often, what remains is the payments actually being made and distributed to the recipient. Usually, the noncustodial parent makes the child support payment to the custodial parent. There are various ways this can be done. If you are making these agreements privately, it is recommended that you utilize the services of a Raleigh divorce lawyer to help you.
If child support payments are worked out privately, the responsible parent can pay by check, money order, or automatic withdrawal from the account. Employer withholding can also be set up.
Employers can be authorized to withhold the amount of child support from the employee's wages, which are sent to North Carolina Child Support Centralized Collections. Those payments are then forwarded to the custodial parent.
Other sources for payment of child support include:
- Unemployment compensation income
- Social Security
- Veterans disability benefits
- Workers' compensation payments
- Tax refunds
