Father neglects childs support payments but pays for storage

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.

More women now paying alimony and child support

People often assume that the majority of child support payments are sent to mothers from fathers, but new data suggests a growing number of women are responsible for such payments. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial lawyers, 45 percent of lawyers saw an increase in women paying alimony while 54 percent saw an increase in mothers paying child support. These trends may impact family courts in Pennsylvania and across the United States.

Child support: Plan for college expenses despite divorced

On average, college tuition in Pennsylvania and across the United States is increasing at a rate of about 3 percent every year. The cost of college tuition can be staggering if parents do not plan ahead. The average cost of a private school can be as much as $46,950 a year and public schools as much as $20,770 a year. Unfortunately, the costs of child support, alimony and double living expenses may make it tempting to delay saving for a child's college education.

Man tries to reduce child support payments through forgery

Relationships often end as a result of betrayal, distrust, lack of compatibility, financial troubles and more. To separate property, wealth and time with children, couples often use the assistance of a lawyer to ensure that everything processes as smoothly as possible. With the assistance of the right lawyer, some couples are able to achieve amicable divorces, child support and custody agreements. Pennsylvania couples seeking a divorce may be interested in one couple's unusual process.

Child support can be difficult to pay for some

Couples who have processed a divorce in Pennsylvania can likely attest to the expense a couple can expect following a divorce. Because couples begin paying for more than one place of residence either before or following a divorce, expenses that were combined are often doubled. In addition, some divorce agreements order one spouse to pay the other alimony and/or child support to assist in the care of any shared children. While making ordered alimony and/or child support payments can be stressful, it is no reason to disappear as a man in another state is accused of doing after having failed to make multiple payments.

Man uses counterfiet money to pay child support

It is often said, "Raising a child takes a village." It also takes a lot of money, time and patience. Understandably, raising children is considerably harder when one parent is left alone to raise a child or children without the other. Fortunately, Pennsylvania attorneys can assist single parents in requesting the assistance of the other parent financially. One man in another state is accused of trying to dodge his child support payments by offering counterfeit money.

Dad avoids paying $560,000 in child support payments for 20 years

In Pennsylvania and across the country, raising children is expensive. It is expensive to give birth, educate, fund activities, clothe and feed children. Most parents who maintain physical custody of any shared children find it essential to receive financial support from the other parent, which is typically included in a child support order issued by a family court. One father decided to ignore his court-ordered payments and was delinquent on his child support payments totaling over $500,000 for over 20 years.

Are Pennsylvania parents recieving their child support?

Parenting is a life-long job. It is a job that comes with little training and many expenses instead of income. Because of relationship failure and the divorce rate, there are parents who maintain primary legal and physical custody of any shared children. Without the other parent's daily assistance, it may make any parenting job a little more difficult. Because family law courts in Pennsylvania do recognize that it is difficult for one parent to bear the majority of the burden for the care and financing of children, one parent may be ordered to contribute child support monthly.

Kevn McKidd's divorce finalized; child support agreement made

Despite a separation, some couples are able to maintain a co-parenting relationship and settle on a child support agreement that is beneficial for their children. Kevin McKidd and his wife, Jane Parker, recently finalized their divorce and from appearances, they appear to have reached an agreement that is in the best interest of their children.
