There are many consequences associated with falling behind on child support payments. What many people may not realize, however, is that back child support can interfere with many other facets of one’s life. For example, parents who owe a significant amount of money in unpaid child support may not be able to leave the country because their passport privileges have been revoked. After all, when one owes a certain amount of unpaid child support, they cannot apply for or use their U.S. passport.
Not only can an inability to use one’s passport be very tough for those who wish to travel for recreational purposes, but it can create serious problems for those who were planning on conducting business travel as well. A business traveler may be unable to attend an important meeting or take care of other crucial matters, which can be very detrimental.
Unfortunately, many people are unable to make child support payments for numerous reasons. This inability to pay child support can be very hard, and it can lead to additional hardships aside from losing one’s passport privileges.
