Every parent should have an appreciation for how crucial child support payments are, whether they are the parent paying or receiving them. This money allows custodial parents to provide the things their child needs and wants while also serving as a way to connect a non-custodial parent and child, even if only financially.
Missing a payment or two may not seem like cause for concern right away, but when delinquent payments stack up and parents cannot get back on track, the consequences can be severe. State agencies go to great lengths to try and hold these parents accountable. In at least one state, these efforts are spreading on to social media.
