Custodial parents in Ohio and other states who are struggling to get regular payments from their ex-spouses may want to expand their knowledge of methods available to rectify the problem. Child support is calculated by the court, considering aspects like outstanding debts owed by both parents and the non-custodial parent's monthly income. Raising children is considered the shared responsibility of both parents, regardless of the fact that they are no longer together.
Separated or divorced parents in Ohio and elsewhere may not have realized that child support is not exclusively a monetary issue. Child support also involves psychological support. In anticipation of the first holiday season after the divorce, one may be feeling anxious about it. But keep in mind that it is also the children's first holiday season after the divorce. Their anxiety is ten times more intense than that of the parents.
In Ohio, the Supreme Court recently dealt with an issue regarding employee-provided benefits. The matter arose when a man applied for reduction in the amount of child support he was responsible for. He claimed that certain benefits provided by his employer should have been excluded from his income when calculations were done originally.
Ohio parents who have gone through a divorce and child custody settlement are often surprised to learn that conflict with their former spouse remains an issue. However, exes who share children will have to find a way to navigate through the remainder of the childhood years before achieving any lasting form of distance from one another. For many, the bulk of their struggles center on matters related to child support.
As one of the biggest names in Hollywood over the past 50 years, Clint Eastwood routinely played movie characters that were not just larger than life -- they rough, tough and seemingly infallible. But Eastwood's real life hasn't lived up to his on-screen persona (and really, how could it?).
Family law includes a wide spectrum of needs ranging from divorce to child support, and everything in between. Every situation is specific to individual families, as well as the stress, anxiety or joy that a person may be feeling through their particular situation. According to recent news, a local Ohio man is responsible for the child support of 21 children. The number of dependents when compared to the income of a single individual has a direct effect on what the courts may deem appropriate for a child support payment.
Family is one of the most important things in most people's lives. It is also an important concept for society as a whole as well, especially the relationship between parents and children. This is why the law requires parents to financially support their children even after parents have divorced. The state of Ohio realizes this and is currently asking county governments across the state to step up their efforts to collect child support from parents who are behind on payments.
When a parent is capable of paying more than the 'basic needs' of a child, then generally he or she can be ordered to do so. The appellate court ruling in a state other than Ohio held that the lower court must consider whether to order Steve Nash, star NBA player, to pay support for his children more than what would be required for just basic needs. This is pretty much a basic tenet of child support law that generally applies in all states.
When an Ohio family is going through a divorce, it is important to keep in mind how the changes will affect shared children. Most parents go to great efforts to protect their kids from the worry and stress that comes with dissolving a marriage, but it is impossible to fully shield them from the emotional turmoil that comes with such a monumental change in their daily lives. Summer break can be a far different experience while a divorce is in progress, but parents can work to ensure that kids have fun throughout the summer, and focus on spending time with both parents.
Most couples early in their marriage have adjustments to make. As most Ohio couples know, becoming a couple after years of being single takes compromise. New research shows however, that couples who fight over financial issues early in their relationship may be better candidates for divorce. This seems to be true whether the couple has few assets or many.
