Following a workplace accident, you may find yourself facing significant financial strain. Faced with such financial strains, Injured Workers often find themselves falling behind on a number of financial obligations – including child support.
In the event that you fall behind on your child support payments, your workers’ compensation benefits may be impacted in two ways. First, your weekly workers’ compensation checks may be reduced in order to pay back child support. Alternatively, in the event that your claim involves a lump sum settlement, your portion of the settlement may be reduced by the amount of child support that past due. These financial arrangement are often negotiable, but it is recommended that you speak with an attorney who is experienced in handling these types of situations.
