The California family courts take child support orders as serious as a heart attack. You must pay your child support no matter what. The payments are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. You have to pay your child support before you pay your own bills. The legal rate of interest (10%) can accrue if you are late. The California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) can do very mean things to people who don’t pay their obligations. For example, they can intercept tax refunds, garnish bank accounts and even suspend your driver’s license.
