To put it mildly, it is a challenge to provide for the children of today’s modern world. Expenses are high and children have many basic needs that you must address. As a family-operated law firm, we understand the financial issues associated with raising children in Tennessee on both a professional and personal level.
Intact families that enjoy two incomes within a single household can experience financial struggles just as anyone else can. However, divorced families maintaining separate households typically have the hardest time making ends meet. In these types of family dynamics, child support is not a luxury; it is a true necessity.
Far too many issues can complicate child support resulting in an increased potential for support payment interruption, which neither parent wants. Losing a job, becoming seriously ill or suffering a catastrophic injury are just three examples of events that can have an immediate and significant effect on child support.
For example, if the custodial parent becomes ill or cannot work any longer, he or she may need increased support. This is fine if the noncustodial parent has the means to pay additional child support, but what if this is not a possibility? Where can you and other Tennessee parents find viable solutions for your child support problems?
One possible avenue worthy of exploration is consulting a family law attorney about your financial hardships. Regardless of your personal circumstances, lawyers have an extensive amount of knowledge about all types of family issues. This means you and your co-parent have a great chance of finding remedies for your child support issues that you did not even know existed.
