Noncustodial moms and dads: Who reneges more on support payments?

17824153_S.jpgHistorically, and over many decades, child support outcomes have dictated that divorced mothers be awarded custody of the children in a marriage and that noncustodial fathers have visitation rights and take on the role of making regular child support payments.

High-profile divorce: Could you live on $470 for food -- a day?

11715674_S.jpgIt is our hope that our readers in Illinois, Missouri and elsewhere find the following divorce-related story instructive rather than purely voyeuristic, given that its details do highlight a few germane points regarding money matters in marital splits.

Case ruling on dads in the delivery room draws scrutiny

In child support talks, don't forget about college tuition

8340137_S.jpgChild support discussions are among the most important aspects of a divorce. Setting child support appropriately will ensure that the children's best interests are protected and neither parent will face financial hardship. Sometimes, however, parents forget to address certain aspects of child support, which can create problems in the future.

Illinois native Kelly could face jail time over child support

18665874_S.jpgMany Illinois fathers are obligated to pay child support to their former partners, often based on divorce settlements. While the amounts they agree to pay are fixed, they are not set in stone. People who lose their jobs or run into other kinds of financial difficulty might be able, with the assistance of a family law attorney, to have their child support requirements adjusted.

Sperm donor ordered to pay child support

20355139_S.jpgThe concept of child support is one commonly discussed where divorce is concerned. The term may also arise in cases where couples who were never married, split, leaving one parent to handle the day to day matters and expenses concerning the children. Until recently, few St. Clair County residents likely heard it in the context of a sperm donor. A man who lives in another state was recently ordered to pay child support to the lesbian couple he donated sperm to so that they could conceive a child. A now 4-year-old girl was conceived through the use of his donation.
