  • Surviving an Economic Downturn

    Many families are feeling the pinch of the slumping economy. Noncustodial parents who have seen their earnings decrease because of lay-offs or a reduction in wages may be struggling to pay child support. Custodial parents who may have been making ends meet on their own may now need the extra help that child support can provide.
