The $2 Trillion Coronavirus Stimulus Package includes direct payments to help people through the crisis. However, if you owe past due child support, your payment may be reduced or eliminated altogether as those past due child support obligations have been reported to the Treasury Department.
Similarly, if you owe past due child support, your payout from your injury claim will be offset by the amount of child support owed. Prior to settling a claim, insurance carriers conduct a lien search to see if you owe past due child support or delinquent taxes to the government.
