Why is your child support payment on hold?

Child support in Massachusetts can be tricky to understand. It gets more difficult when you realize that you have stopped getting support even though your child's other parent has been paying it. This often happens due to a hold being placed on your account. When this happens, you should be able to get information explaining why the account is on hold.

Is jail the right punishment for non-payment of child support?

There are many ways Massachusetts handles parents who do not fulfill their child support obligations. In most cases, this involves extra fees and fines. Sometimes cases are handled in more serious ways, including taking the person's driver's license or putting them in jail. You may be wondering why someone would be jailed and if that really is the right way to handle this situation. 

How does remarriage affect your child?

A major part of child custody is learning to adjust to the changes in your family structure. As time goes on, you and your ex may remarry, adding new spouses and possibly other children into your home. Many times, this can cause some disruption with your children. In some custody cases in Massachusetts, it could even lead to your children not wanting to visit your home anymore. You have to be aware of how getting remarried can affect your kids to avoid such problems.

What to do when the other parent refuses visitation?

If you are in a situation where you are not together with your child's other parent and you are not the custodial parent, you may run into a time when he or she refuses to allow you to see your child. This can be quite devastating, but do know Massachusetts law is on your side even if it does not always feel like it.
