Achieving and maintaining economic stability is vital for parents because children depend on stable financial support. Parents who owe child support need steady income to make payments. To increase parents’ ability to pay, many child support programs help connect parents to work – mostly through referral programs. Many states can connect unemployed or underemployed parents to employment services.
