The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act stimulus checks are beginning to be deposited in bank accounts.
On April 13, 2020, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, informed financial institutions and creditors the COVID-19 stimulus checks are protected from federal and state action related to garnishment, attachment or execution.
There is an exception in the CARES Act allowing the stimulus funds to be garnished if a person is not current on child support payments.
These are difficult and trying times for everyone. If you or a loved one finds yourself in the position of owing back child support, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc., are available for consultations to discuss child custody and the child support obligations.
