SupportPay: reducing the difficulties of child support issues

Many Gig Harbor, Washington, spouses are aware of the difficulties concerning child support. Under the law, child support is the monthly obligation of a non-custodial parent to a child, regardless of whether the child's parents were married or if the child was born out of wedlock.

For parents, child support issues are more than that, and they often struggle with the other spouse over the issues related to timely child support payments and how the financial support is spent. Such matters may result in recurring conflicts and disagreements between the custodial and non-custodial parents. This might be the reason why one company, Ittavi, developed a mobile application for child support called SupportPay.

SupportPay is an application for a child support payment management service. It recently raised $1.1 million to continue saving parents from the frustration and stress of managing child support payments. The mobile app allows both parents to cooperate and collaborate when dividing the cost of child care and other financial needs.

The founder of Ittavi stated that being a child of divorce helps her understand the complicated situation that the parents and child experience when it comes to child support. Dividing the cost of child care can be devastating, even if a child support order is in place.

The child support payer often wonders if the child support that he or she are paying is really spent on child care and other expenses related to the child. With SupportPay, there is transparency between the custodial parent and the non-custodial parent on where the money is being spent.

However, SupportPay handles only the financial aspect of child support: dividing the expenses, how much is owed and the transparency of expenses. Child support issues in Washington State are evolving, and there may be matters that both parents and a family law professional can work on together.
