Child support trouble might need to be resolved in court

Child support is something that many parents have to deal with when they aren't in a relationship with the child's other parent any longer. It is important that parents who have child custody orders that include child support remember to separate the two.

It can be difficult for parents to do this, but it is what is best for the child.

What happens when someone doesn't comply with a court order?
