Entrepreneurs and child support payments

On Behalf of | Dec 11, 2023 | Divorce |

Child support is a major responsibility for many entrepreneurs who get a divorce and have children. As an entrepreneur, you may wonder about the different ways to make child support payments, especially if you do not have a typical job that withholds support automatically.

It is important to go over common payment methods and identify the most practical option.

Online payments, checks and money orders

One of the most convenient ways to pay child support as an entrepreneur is through online payments. Many government agencies and child support programs now offer online platforms for making payments. These platforms are secure and easy to use. All you need is a computer or smartphone with internet access. By logging into the designated website, you can set up recurring payments, make one-time payments and track your payment history. Online payments save you time and effort, allowing you to focus on your entrepreneurial endeavors while fulfilling your child support obligations.

Another option for paying child support is through money orders and checks. A money order is a prepaid payment method that you can purchase from various places such as post offices, banks and convenience stores. To make a child support payment with a money order, simply fill it out with the required information and mail it to the appropriate child support agency. You can also choose to pay child support using checks. Remember to keep a copy of the check and any related documentation for your records.

In-person payments

Some entrepreneurs prefer to make child support payments in person. This option allows you to directly hand over the payment to a representative at the child support agency. You can visit the agency’s office during their working hours and make the payment using cash, a money order or a check. The Department of Health and Human Services states that in New Hampshire, you can also make in-person child support payments at various retail locations, but you could have to pay a $3.99 fee and should bring your account information and the receive code (14669).

As an entrepreneur, you have multiple options for paying child support. Choose the method that suits your preferences and circumstances. By fulfilling your child support obligations, you are ensuring the well-being of your children and maintaining a responsible approach to your entrepreneurial journey.
