If you owe child support, don’t expect a part of the stimulus check


President Trump signed the CARES Act into law.

It is the largest stimulus package in American history, costing $2.2 trillion.

A significant portion of that money will be spent sending Americans stimulus checks.

For weeks, the CARES Act Economic Relief Plan has been changed and updated within the halls of Congress, which has left many Americans with questions about who would and would not be included.

With the bill now law, we can answer several questions, such as:

1If I owe child support, am I getting a stimulus check?

The answer is no.

On his website, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, one of the CARES Act co-sponsors, said “those who have past due child support payments that the states have reported to the Treasury Department” will not get a check.



  1. So the people that owe back child support won’t get a check but will that check go to child support for the children that have money owed to them??

  2. If the 1200 is what the child support payee gets and they owe less than that amount will they get the remaining of the 1200 afterwards?
