About Child Support in Maryland
There are several important aspects of child support that you should be
aware of. First, in these types of cases, the custodial parent will receive
monthly money payments from the non-custodial parent. These payments will
be made directly to the custodial parent and they will be used to pay
for the child’s food, rent, clothes, and other essential items.
If circumstances regarding the parents or their children change substantially
later on, the court may alter the child support order, as it retains the
jurisdiction to do so. Lastly, the payments will end automatically once
the child dies, reaches 18 years old, or becomes emancipated (in certain cases).
If the noncustodial parent fails to make their payment in full and on time,
the government may:
- Deny the renewal or issuance of a passport
- Bring contempt of court actions against that parent
- Report parents owing child support to credit bureaus
- Intercept federal and state tax refunds to make child support payments
- Request the revocation or suspension of a recreational or professional license
