Child support and unemployed parents

Non-custodial parents who unexpectedly lose their jobs may want more information about the effects of unemployment on an active child support order. In New Jersey and other states, child support orders are in place to help ensure that the children's needs are met. Parents will generally find that a child support order remains in effect even when the party who is responsible for making the payments is not working. When they explore the options that are available to them, unemployed parents may find that this potentially stressful situation can be successfully navigated.

Federal efforts aid collection of unpaid child support

New Jersey families can face tough times when they are dealing with delinquent or unpaid child support from the other parent. Child support orders are issued by the court to ensure that the everyday expenses, including educational costs, medical and dental bills and other major expenses, are covered by their parents. Due to the precarious situation of children and the increased social costs that can result from unpaid support orders, state and federal government agencies have prioritized the enforcement and collection of unpaid child support.
