Can my tax refund be intercepted for back child support?

If you are having a hard time paying child support, you may be going through a number of problems. For example, you may be facing financial difficulties because you lost your job or are suffering from a medical issue that you did not expect. On top of these setbacks, you could have a considerable amount of anxiety about the entire situation and be unsure of what to do. In Bryan, and cities across the entire state of Texas, there are other ways that you could be affected by unpaid child support. For example, your tax refund could be intercepted.

According to the Texas Attorney General's Office, tax refunds are intercepted due to unpaid child support. For those who receive public assistance, tax refunds are intercepted when non-custodial parents fall over $150 behind on their child support payments. However, for non-custodial parents who do not receive public assistance, tax refunds are only intercepted when the parent owes over $500 worth of back child support.

You may be unsure of how to handle your circumstances, but you should not leave these matters unattended. You may have a number of options available to help you straighten out the situation, such as setting up a payment plan or modifying your child support order. If possible, you should do what you can to stay current on your child support payments, since falling behind can have serious ramifications.

This post was arranged to offer general information on the consequences of back child support and is not an alternative to legal recommendations.
