Was issued a child support summons on April 4. On page 3 was the words, Settlement may be possible before court by calling DCSS. I called and paid the arrears in full. On April 24, I received a letter from DCSS stating: The DCSS has notified the GaDept of Driver Services that you have settled with our office or are now in compliance with the terms of your child support order. (ga suspends your licence for non payment). I was notified today that they are issuing a bench warrant for failure to appear, even tho it was settled a month ago. What would the penalties likely be in this situation and is there a way to nip this in the bud as I met the reasons the court was issued to begin with. I followed the procedure listed and was given documentation it was taken care of. Please advise
Child support is a payment made from one parent to another parent (usually from non-custodial to custodial), to help ensure the child's financial needs are met.
