If you have been through the divorce process, then you may have been assigned child support payments. These payments are designed to compensate for various costs of provision such as food, clothing, shelter, education, and health care. If you are not the custodial parent, then these support payments will supplement your ex-spouse’s income in order to ensure that your child’s needs are met. When determining child support and child custody, the courts will make its decisions based on the needs and best interest of the child.
While the ability to provide for the child is one of the serious factors considered by the court, there are some cases in which the custodial parent is unable to financially provide for their child on their own and requires financial assistance. If you are assigned child support payments, then you may experience various financial hardships that make these payments extremely difficult to provide. There are many types of financial hardship, such as losing a job, lowering income, and incurring other financial expenses.
