When one parent has physical custody of a child, he or she may rely on the help of the other parent to provide financial support to ensure a child's basic needs are met. Problems can occur when one parent is late with payments or stops making them altogether. People in Michigan may wish to know more about recovering child support payments.
Going to court may be necessary to get a parent to fulfill child support obligations after a divorce, and the parent petitioning the court should bring as much information as possible to illustrate the current situation and the problem. This could involve information that shows one party has not paid. If possible, one should also bring documentation that shows previous attempts to collect payments.
