Most parents will attest that they want to best for the kids, which most often means financing their care, education and experiences. Unfortunately, not all parents agree to the same terms and care for their children, and some parents do not offer financial support. The lack of physical and/or monetary support from the other parent is typically stressful and often resorts to the use of a family attorney in Pennsylvania to intervene. Parents may be interested in one father’s case that has made recent news due to his child support payments not being a financial priority.

The 30-year-old father has been in an unusual court case with his parents. Apparently, the man and his parents needed the court to intervene in his living situation at his parent’s home. They wished him to move out, but he did not. According to the court, he has failed to prove if he has made enough of an effort to secure a job to pay for his own expenses. 

The man may not have a job or his parent’s home to live in, but he has an 8-year-old son. According to court records, the man has had a difficult time affording his court-ordered child support payments. According to the mother, he has not paid $2,500 in child support payments, but court records show that he paid more than $9,000 in the last five years on storage for items that he claims only have sentimental value.

It is not uncommon for parents to struggle to make child support payments or for some to obtain court-ordered payments from the other parent. No matter the side a parent is on, a Pennsylvania family law attorney can assist a parent with his or her struggles. Raising children is expensive, and the right attorney can offer advice on the best approach in difficult parent struggles.
