Michigan child support payments now easier to make

Convenience can make a difference. Across the country, the excuses for not making child support payments are almost as prolific as the delinquent payments themselves. However, the state of Michigan has been working to eliminate some of these excuses.

This past August, Michigan introduced a convenient way for some parents to make child support payments. Using a network called PayNearMe, parents can now make payments at 7-Eleven, Family Dollar and CVS stores. As of April 2017, over $1.3 million in support payments had been processed using this network.

For some Michigan parents, using the postal system to mail a check is not convenient. Sometimes, it is simply easier for the individual to use cash. In this case, this network offers a convenient way for parents to make payments without having to write or mail a check.

For those who want to use the PayNearMe network, it will be necessary for the individual to enter their account information on the network's website. Once this occurs, a payment code will be transmitted. The individual can now visit a local store that offers this service and proceed with the transaction. It is important to keep due dates in mind, as this process can take up to three business days for the funds to be received.

Child support can be a problem area for many Michigan parents. However, with this new, convenient payment option, one more obstacle to making payments has been removed. However, for those still struggling to make payments or who are not receiving the payments due them, there are legal options available.
