Children suffer the most from unpaid child support

Fortunately, governments in every state across the country have established systems of support for children whose parents have separated. Child support is money paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent in order to meet the financial needs of their children. Although Arizona parents who have separated may no longer be obligated to each other, they remain obligated to support the needs of their children. Child support is court-ordered, and strict penalties exist for those who choose to neglect child support payments. These penalties can include wage garnishment, suspension of driver's license and even extensive jail time.

Women can face unique financial challenges after divorce

The end of a marriage can be an emotionally and psychologically draining experience. Divorce can present many special challenges for women in particular, especially financially. A recent survey concluded that 46 percent of women experienced financial struggles post-divorce. In Arizona and across the country, there are resources available for newly-divorced women to help alleviate financial stress.

Divorce: Preparation is key

According to recent statistics, half of all married couples will separate. In Arizona and across the United States, about two million couples file for divorce every single year. It's no secret that this process can be very arduous and stressful. However, before filing for divorce, there are things to consider that may make the process easier and less strenuous for all parties involved.

Child support payments are being updated in several states

A divorce or split means that a family potentially goes from two incomes down to one. Child support payments are court-ordered payments that are made periodically by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent to support the needs of the children such as education, health care, food, clothing and shelter. Child support systems were established in Arizona and across the country to ensure that children do not suffer the economic impact that often comes with the end of a relationship. However, since the U.S. economy has grown exponentially in the last 20 years, many states are in need of updates to the way child support payments are calculated.
