Support for those struggling with child support payments

When you are going through divorce court and there are children involved, most of the decisions will be made to assure that the best interests of the children are met. For child custody, they will determine who is the primary caretaker, whether there is a history of alcohol or substance abuse or even domestic violence. They may even ask the children how they feel about their relationship with each of their parents.

When it comes to property division, it is not uncommon for the custodial parent to retain the home. Again, this is done to minimize the potential impact on the children. With regards to child support, the courts will look at many factors including the income of both parents, the expected expenses including whether any child has special needs that could raise the costs such as disabilities or health concerns.

Once all the decisions regarding a divorce are determined, there may come a time where one spouse fails to fulfill their financial duties with regards to child support. This is not taken lightly with the courts, though collecting the necessary child support payments is not always easy.

If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot get your ex-spouse to follow through with their child support obligations, our firm may be able to help. If your spouse is refusing to pay or has fallen behind with delinquent payments, you may need to go back to court to get the matter resolved. This may not be easy to do alone; working with a lawyer familiar with child support payments might be in your best interests.
