How is child support payment enforced?

Child support is an extremely important area of family law that is designed to ensure that children are able to maintain the same or nearly the same quality of life after a divorce that they became accustomed to before the divorce. Many factors go into determining what is considered a fair amount of child support, including the income of the parent paying child support and the amount of time that a parent can spend with the child directly.

Same-sex marriage has been a very popular topic for many people all across the country for the past few months. The legalization of same-sex marriage has understandably contributed to a surge in interest about same-sex couples and their rights under the law, with issues such as adoption for same-sex couples, prenuptial agreements and even divorce commonly arising.

Unfortunately, these payments are still not always fair, but individuals are encouraged to remember that a child support order is a legal mandate, and must be followed.
