Are you looking forward to receiving your stimulus check? Unfortunately, if you are behind on your child support payments, you will not be getting one. The coronavirus relief bill enacted by the federal government provides cash payments to Americans as aid through this crisis, with the exception of individuals owing child support. The checks will be recaptured to pay off those arrears (back owed child support). However, the government will not be recapturing checks for those behind on student loans or taxes.
If you have questions on whether this will apply to you, or if you are in need of a modification of child support as a result of these unprecedented times, contact one of our experienced attorneys for a free consultation.
