Since 1998, this federal law has helped punish parents who either owe more than $5,000 in child support and have failed to pay support for over a year or who owe more than $10,000 and have failed to pay child support for more than two years.

Estranged parents in Texas and throughout the country might choose these months because they might be better for children. During March, parents might be able to deal with the requisite legal business while their children are busy with school, but others might prefer August when children are home more and they can spend more time together.
