Many Illinois parents may face the struggle of needing child support. There are numerous instances in which a parent required to make child support payments does not make those payments, and a custodial parent is left trying to make ends meet on his or her own. However, a parent may be able to take certain actions in an attempt to receive the support payments he or she is owed.
Wage garnishment is often a tactic used when a parent does not pay child support. However, other sources of income may also be able to be garnished in order for a parent who is owed support to get that money. Social Security can, in some cases, be accessed in order to take care of back child support.
