Payment of child support


I have a similar question to this. If one is not working at all, how doe sone get child support from them in general?


Dear jacsval & desie:

Greetings. First, thanks for the short, short question!

No, child support does not get drawn from the disability check, but if there is a minor child usually the disability cuts a separate check for the custodial parent.

If not working at all, child support can still be entered against the person that is not working, and they may be forced then to go out and get a job to be able to pay. Thank you.

If one is NOT working and receives disability, does the child support get drawn from disability check?
