Orders & Payments

Child support order and payment amounts have implications for the economic well-being of noncustodial parents, custodial parents, and children. Most noncustodial parents with a child support order pay part, but not the full amount of that order; likewise, most custodial parents who are owed child support receive some support, but not the full amount they are owed.
