One state offers new option for paying child support

Studies have shown that children do best when both parents are actively involved in providing both emotional and financial support. Parents who are under court orders to provide child support payments often have a strong desire to do so but lack the means or have other obstacles in their way. California parents who are experiencing difficulties in meeting these obligations do have avenues to seek relief.

One state child support agency recently accepted an offer from a nationwide payment service known as PayNearMe to contract to accept child support payments at their local 7-Elevens. The agency decided to accept these services, as it is believed that parents who work odd hours or have difficulties with other banking options will find the service more convenient for their needs. There are many parents who desire to make these payments, but life circumstances may make traditional business hours difficult to accommodate.

The service will accept cash payments and has offered a variety of bill-paying services for its customers. The child support agency accepts several forms of payment; the most common form is through federal wage withholding. Clients can also make payments through bank withdrawals, checks by mail and cash payments in person.

Washington State just started accepting child support payments through this outlet earlier in May. Officials stated that they were willing to facilitate parents' efforts to make these vital payments in order for the children to ultimately benefit. California parents who are struggling to make these payments in a timely manner do have the option of seeking a modification to these orders. An experienced family law attorney can provide further information and assistance in filing a motion to have these orders modified if circumstances point to a valid reason for doing so.
