Hello. I have a court order for child support/alimony in the amount of $3000/monthly and $100 for arrears. As I understand it arrears only come into play if a payment is late. Here's where I get confused. My payments come directly out of my paycheck on a biweekly basis (again via the court system). I'm being charged the arrears now because of the goofey math associated with biweekly payments vs monthly. So is this extra $100 going into a holding 'pool' of some sort until my pay checks catch up (2 months out of the year we get a third payment)? If not, is this simply a penalty charge of some sorts that I'll never see again? Any thoughts on the matter? Thanks for taking the time to read this and for your help!
