The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many people being laid off from work and without a way to make ends meet financially. While some are more well-off than others and aren’t yet feeling the financial burden COVID-19 is causing, many others are scrambling to find ways to pay rent, buy food, and keep their utilities on. For those people without a job and money stashed away, they were thrilled to learn that President Trump approved the $2 trillion economic stimulus package.

This would mean they would get some sort of relief for the time being while the country continues to try and slow the spread of the virus.

Sadly, millions of individuals who thought they would be getting a check from the government learned that they wouldn’t be receiving one. Among those who likely won’t be getting a COVID-19 relief check are those who are behind on their child support payments. A 35-year-old father says he needs the financial help but won’t be getting it as he fell behind on his child support payments, according to News 5 Nashville. The father shared that with a reduction in hours at work, he is living each week trying to afford his bills. He told the source that “it’s a struggle to keep food on the table and to make sure I don’t get behind on other bills.”
