Child support payments are undoubtedly vital for single parents in Louisiana and across the United States.

These facts make recent stats provided by the United States Census Bureau all the more alarming.

Handling the holidays as a divorced family

Spending time with family is a staple to the holiday season. This is also a time of year that can get a little tricky and present some conflict for divorced families with children in Louisiana and throughout the rest of the country.

Making prompt and sufficient child support payments can prove to be a challenge for some noncustodial parents, especially if they are unemployed or underemployed. Many noncustodial parents who spend time in jail or prison are later released to a bad situation.

This not only straps the noncustodial parent financially, but also robs the child of the greatly needed finances for everyday expenses.
