My husband is trying to pay off about a 30,000 arrears bill for Child Support (most of the amount is all interest) and it seems to just keep going up although he is paying child support now, and the arrears. He was out of work at a time and couldn't find a job hence starting the arrears because he was unable to make payments. Is there anyway that we can settle this with a lump sum so that we can eliminate the constantly climbing interest??
As long as the state has not been paying you any benefits, you can generally stipulate to satisfaction of child support arrearages. However, if the state has been making payments for which it is entitled to reimbursement, they will also have to join the stipulation before the court will enter an order eliminating any child support arrears and interest.
