The Child Support Manual
In the best interest of the child
Whether you are married, divorced, mother or father, it is every parent’s obligation to support their child. However, there are many different opinions about what it means to support a child, and unfortunately when divorce is part of the equation, the difference in opinion becomes much more pronounced. If you are not careful the focus can easily shift from the best interests of the child to all about the money.
That is why there are legal guidelines to follow when calculating child support. The court aims at putting the child’s best interests first and establishing some consistency, and if you want to be successful in your child support dispute, whether you are the payee or recipient, you need to understand the rules and guidelines. This book not only takes your through what the guidelines are and how they are applied in order to calculate child support, but also the reasons behind them, which will ultimately help you build a solid argument to achieve your objectives.
How this manual will help you
If staying out of court is not a possibility, either due to a high conflict divorce, or complicating issues that require legal assistance, you will find help within these pages to guide you on finding the right lawyer, what to expect in legal face to face meetings, the court process, and how to present yourself and your case to your best advantage.
Not all cases, of course are made equal, so if you are in a child support dispute that involves any military members or has international connections, your research needs to go above and beyond the internal United States legal system. This book will assist you in navigating those waters, as well as how to prevent and react quickly to common stumbling blocks, like trying to locate a missing parent who is avoiding child support collection and what to do when the other person declares bankruptcy.
Whether you are at the beginning, middle or end of your divorce, child support is something that you will have to deal with until your children reach the legal age of adulthood, and sometimes even after that. If you are at the beginning of the process, you will find the information here to help you determine what documents and financial information you need to build your case, how to set up a temporary child support order, and how to get yourself and your children through the rough beginning.
If you are in the middle of your dispute use this book as a checklist to make sure you have included and gone over everything that you need to, such as, who will pay for the kids’ health insurance? Or, if you need child care, have you made provisions for that?
An incredible resource!
Not every case will have to go to court. In fact, it can often be more beneficial to both parties to settle out of court, but you have to know how to negotiate effectively and what alternatives to court you have. It is possible to structure and write the agreement yourselves, but there are certain requirements that you don’t want to miss out. This book will guide you through how to write up a child support agreement and how to get that agreement turned into a legal order, with tips and suggestions that you will want to read before you sign your name to anything.
Even years after a divorce, child support might need to change. The amounts determined at the time of a divorce, are only reflective of supporting the child’s needs at that moment. Children change, their needs change, and circumstances change, so it will be necessary to review the child support amount from time to time. Before you consider doing that, find out here what circumstances would qualify for a request for modification in child support orders, and how you would apply for the modifications.
It’s a minefield out there and it’s confusing enough to deal with all of the changes that are more than likely happening in your life right now, so don’t go through book after book on child support, when you can find all the answers you need right here.
