Child Support or Job Enabler?

I have recently applied at 2 different decent paying jobs I was phone interviewed and interviewed in person. Once a background check and drug test were completed they individually ran credit checks on me and since I am not making as much money as I used to I have accrued some child support backpay which comes out on my credit report. Therefore the job offers were taken off the table. So child support is stopping me from getting better paying jobs. I honestly didn't know that putting CS on your credit report was legal. I have bought cars, a home, and received cash loans from banks so the only thing that putting CS on my credit report is affecting is me paying my CS. The TX AG's office is a joke.

Yeah, that's ridiculous. Why should that be a reason to not give you a job?

In CA, even if your children are older than 21 years of age, the individual will still pay what he or she owes in Child Support to the State.

Can your child support take away your stimulus check?
