5 Things You Should Know About Child Support

Posted by Michael G. Butash | Aug 11, 2017 | 0 Comments

Sometimes things do not always work out with your significant other. It can be painful for any couple to end their relationship but it is always worse when there are children involved. Things can get messy and emotions are far more involved then hoped for. The children are always stuck in the middle and even though it shouldn't be this way, parents often have a hard time realizing what is the children's best interest.

When it comes to custody – it can be painful but the judge will be able to look out for the children's best interest and decides who needs to make child support payments. Lutz parents that are dealing with child support may not fully understand everything they should when it comes to it. Here are some tips in mind that will help you have a better understanding:

Why it shouldn't be handled outside of court

Sometimes parents that seemingly get along will try and handle their child support outside of the courts. This may seem like it is the best thing at the time but being prepared for the future is important. Not all co-parenting relationships stay smooth sailing – it is important to remember this. If things are going great now, that could change tomorrow and you should make sure your children are set-up accordingly.

How long should someone pay child support

If the child is under the age of 18 unless certain circumstances arise. If the child has married before the age of 18 or if the child (at 16 years of age) can independently care for themselves.
