Many of our clients often avoid the issue of collecting child support from parents who have status issues or are undocumented in the United States. It is important to note that child support is for the child, not the parent, so a child is entitled to the support. Currently many people are undocumented who have to pay child support according to Court orders. It is hard to enforce. Family Court has nothing to do with Immigration. However, if the illegal parent refuses to pay and it becomes a criminal matter he or she could then be subject to removal proceedings if ICE is informed.
