Illinois parents, like parents all across America, want to provide for their children as best as they can. However, divorce can make providing for them more difficult. Child support agreements are supposed to ensure that custodial parents are able to financially support their children. Unfortunately, parents who must pay the support can, at times, have difficulty doing so.
The term "deadbeat dad" has become a negative phrase often associated with fathers who do not pay child support. However, some individuals may be too quick to judge parties who are in this situation. Because child support amounts are often decided in court, some parties may wish to make their payments but are unable to do so because of their limited incomes.
