Child support can be established with or without a divorce or custody case.

In Idaho, child support is based on the income of both parents, the number of overnights the children spend in each of your homes, the cost of insurance for your children, and the division of tax credits.

Non-payment of child support can cause serious issues. Your driver's license or passport may be suspended, your tax returns or bank accounts seized, or in some instances you may face jail time for non-payment. If you find yourself in this situation it is important to contact an attorney to help you mitigate possible sanctions for non-payment as soon as possible.
