Child support: More than a monthly check

Child support does support children and their activities, but that doesn't mean it covers everything a child needs. There are circumstances where parents may want to pitch in extra to support a child's new hobby or extracurricular activities. A problem some families have is that when one person pays support, that person might think that is the only monetary obligation. Realistically, that money only evens out the child's living conditions; it doesn't take the place of all related costs or situations.

What are the advantages of electronic payments?

There are a few different ways to make child support payments; don't assume that you have to write or receive checks in all cases, though this is the traditional method. One other option that has gained a lot of traffic lately is the use of electronic payment methods. You can think of this similarly to online transfers with sites like PayPal or direct deposit transfers made from an employer to an employee.
