Noncustodial parents should stay in their children's lives

All parents with minor children, whether in Georgia or elsewhere, usually suffer a multitude of worries about the effect of the divorce trauma on the children. Truth be told, however, there are no lasting scars or permanent psychological deficits that the children must suffer. Many highly successful people came from a divorced household. Both parents, including noncustodial parents, can ease the burden on the children by remaining involved and by showing that the bond of love remains strong.

Lack of employment opportunities presents child support issues

There has been a growing trend to imprison certain citizens who are often struggling to make ends meet. Noncustodial parents who are unable to consistently make their child support payments have been sentenced to serve time in their local jails as a means of forcing them to meet their financial obligations. There may be parents in Georgia who are also experiencing difficulty in either making or receiving these vital monies.

Court sentences man to jail in spite of paying late child support

Divorced parents have many issues to settle between them. Frequently, a court will determine the type of custody that would be the optimal arrangement for the children and which parent is in the best position to provide child support payments. As such, the noncustodial parent is expected to provide financial support on a regular basis. There may be many Georgia families that also struggle to ensure that all the needs of their children are being met.

Societal changes reflected in child support decisions

The world today is not the same as it was just a few decades ago. This change has even been reflected in the way judges are determining who should provide the child support when a marriage ends in divorce. This shift may have impacted many families in Georgia just as it has throughout the country.

Man stunned by child support bill

Recently, a man was stunned to receive notification that he was being held responsible for a bill totaling thousands of dollars. It is apparently in relation to back child support that he was told years ago he didn't owe. Unfortunately for him, however, a judge has decided that he will have to pay it. While the majority of non-custodial parents in Georgia do have to pay support, most likely none of them will ever have a story like this man's.

Program looks to aid noncustodial parents

Raising a child as a single parent is becoming more frequent in today's culture. Often, when a child is born to unmarried parents, the biological father is not aware of his rights. One program in a nearby state is hoping to reach out to noncustodial parents and help them establish parental rights as well as a relationship with the child involved. Georgia parents may benefit from some of the information about the program.

Flexibility helps for Georgia parents expecting child support

Georgia parents who wait every month on child support or alimony payments may need to practice patience, according to a recent report. A couple may have the financial arrangements settled in court during divorce proceedings, but circumstances sometimes vary, making a change in those agreed upon child support or alimony payments inevitable. Learning to be flexible will help during those times of change.

Man is being held in Georgia prison until he pays child support

The former general counsel of Glock, Inc., which has its US headquarters office in Georgia, had been incarcerated after being convicted of several crimes. The charges against him were reversed on appeal, and he was awaiting his release when he was informed that he was to remain in prison until back child support he owed his ex-wife was paid. The child support amount owed is in the thousands of dollars, He is also expected to pay for interest accrued on that amount in addition to the legal fees of his ex-wife.

Georgia residents beware of child support scam

Georgia parents who have been ordered to pay child support may find themselves struggling to make ends meet at times. Although this is a legal obligation, the person is only required what they have been ordered to pay. A recent child support scam is making headlines and has some parents concerned they could be the next victim.

Will Georgia stockbrokers have to lose jobs to pay child support?

Georgia stockbrokers may possibly have cause to worry if they are behind on child support payments. A secretary of state in another state has revoked the license of two stockbrokers who live in different counties and owe different amounts of child support to their children's mothers. The two men are no longer allowed to sell stocks in that state unless they make arrangements for child support.
