All states run a child support enforcement program, either in the human services department or department of revenue, often with the help of district attorneys and other law enforcement agencies and officials of family or domestic relations courts. Families seeking child support services must apply directly through their state or local agency which is running the program. Almost $18 billion in child support is distributed to a caseload of about 17 million.

what i want to say about child support, the worst affected victims of divorce are probably the children. The most traumatizing situation for a child is perhaps seeing one’s parents getting separated. Being the constant witness to fights and emotional tumult among his or her parents is certainly an unfortunate circumstance for a child. A divorce results not only separation of spouses but also breakdown of an entire family. As for a child both of the parents are dear to him or her, being away from one of them can hamper his emotional state of mind severely. Hence, child custody and child support is an important affair in divorce that should be dealt with care to ensure a bright future for the child.

Child support is one of the most important forms of alimony or spousal support post divorce. As child support is for the benefits of the child both the parents are expected to take the initiation to make proper provisions on child support alimony. Incase if it is a mutual divorce, parents should consult the lawyer to help them in dealing with the child support prior to the filing of the divorce petition. In a contested divorce the receiving parent must make it a point to claim a hansom amount from his or her spouse as the sum of money for child support is solely concerned with the welfare of the child.

Child custody is well related to child support as the parent who is awarded with child custody is the one who receives child support from the other parent or the one who gets the visitation rights. Though alimony is the part of taxable income for the spouse who gets it but on the contrary the child support is exempted from tax for the person who is granted with the child financial support. The spouse who is paying the child support already pays the tax levied on the support amount to the government.

Child support and visitation rights also have a positive effect on the child. Due to frequent meetings with the separated parent will make him or her believe that he or she is still close to the parent. On receiving both the emotional and financial support from the other parent will certainly lead to a feeling that his or her parent still loves and cares for him.
