If I give the person I pay child support to money and get a reciept will that later give me credit for child support in any way....my X is asking for 400.00 school clothes and I really want to give it but I want credit from child support............thanks
Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
That depends on a lot of things. Does the other parent receive any kind of welfare? And does the order say that you are supposed to pay it directly to child support Enforcement?
And what state is this in?
Oregon and I am sure he gets food stamps and Oregon pays its child support thru income withholdings, that is how I pay this every month
Food stamps do not usually get reimbursed through child support payments, but if this is being enforced by Child Support Enforcement, you want to contact them first and find out what their policy is.
I looked up the oregon Child Support Guidelines and I think I will
It will not reduce the withholding unless a court order requires a modification to the withholding. That can be complicated to do it for a one time change because then it has to be changed back.
I have practiced family law for more than 14 years, focusing on child custody and domestic violence
My profile page is saying that you are waiting for a response from me but it looks to me like I was the last person to comment on this chat. Do you have further questions for me?
