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
