Taking a look at in-kind child support

When it comes to child support, providing a child with the financial security that they depend on is very important. However, for every noncustodial parent who owes child support, it is also vital to understand their rights, make sure that their child support order is appropriate and familiarize themselves with various child support issues. For example, those who have made in-kind child support payments in Lee County, or another Florida county, may want to get credit for such contributions.

In-kind child support payments take many forms, from paying a child's meals to buying clothes for a child. According to the Administration for Children and Families, in-kind payments are sometimes taken into consideration when calculating the income of each parent. For those who regularly provide their child's custodial parent with a significant amount of in-kind support, and are struggling with paying the child support they owe, receiving credit for in-kind payments could help them tremendously.

Material published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information's website reveals that a lot of parents prefer in-kind child support and other types of informal payments. While state agencies are often involved in formal child support arrangements, in-kind contributions may allow noncustodial parents to directly provide their child or the child's parent with services or goods. Although in-kind payments, also known as non-cash contributions, have a number of advantages, it is critical for parents to closely assess the unique details concerning their set of circumstances and focus on providing their children with the tools they need.
