Businessman lands in jail due to unpaid child support

If you are a parent, you will almost certainly be aware of the high cost of providing for a child's well-being. Food, clothes, school fees and medical bills are just a few of the expenses you will have to manage. So when parents separate, it can be a real struggle for the custodial parent to cover all the costs. The child support system is in place to help with that and to ensure that children receive the support they deserve from both parents.

Man to pay child support despite not being biological parent

When it comes to family law, the issue of what defines a parent can often be a delicate one. Many children in New York have non-biological parent figures, whether they are adoptive parents, stepparents, legal guardians or otherwise. When it comes to matters of custody and child support though, clarity in these issues is particularly important. In one recent case, a man has found himself paying support for a child who has been proven not to be his.

Father attempts to acquire full custody of unborn child

When parents separate, the primary issue on their minds is often the custody of their children, wondering who will they live with and how often will they see their other parent. Suddenly, these parents have to share their child's time and this can be difficult to come to terms with. In New York law, the aim is to ensure that any custody or visitation agreements/arrangements are in the best interests of the child.

Former New York governor has $7.5 million divorce settlement

Deciding who gets what in the aftermath of a divorce is an important part of the process, but one that can often lead to a dispute. When people have been married for a long time, or when their assets are great, there may be a lot of shared property. Other factors, such as prenuptial agreements, also come into play during divorce negotiations. In New York, a former governor is expected to pay a hefty settlement to his former spouse.

Father accused of owing almost $100,000 in child support

Every year in New York, there are probably hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support payments left unpaid. Whether the parent simply forgets or deliberately avoids the payments, the result is the same. The children go without the extra financial support that could be crucial to their well-being. For this reason, reports of past due child support payments are taken very seriously.
