Most parents in Rhode Island will agree that raising a child can be expensive. For a single parent, the process can seem even financially troublesome. Following a divorce, it is common to set up a child support payment plan. This is especially true for situations where one parent takes primary or sole custody. If the non-custodial parent is required to pay child support, these payments are used to cover the financial needs of the child.
But what happens if a parent is unable to make child support payments or refuses to make these payments? This can present a very difficult situation for everyone involved and could lead to a serious situation for the parent failing to make child support payments.
