Coronavirus Family Opinion

You’re not getting a coronavirus check if you’re late on child support

I haven’t read the coronavirus relief bill, but I hope NBC News did when they reported…

Under a 1996 law, the Treasury Department operates a program that allows it to collect overdue child support by cutting or withholding federal payments as an offset.

I don’t think that’s cool, but I get it. What makes it less cool is they have similar ‘offsets’ against folks who have past tax debts, or are behind on other payments to federal or state governments like student loan payments, but everything has been forgiven besides those parents late with their child support.
