What are possible ways child support can be enforced?

Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful experiences anyone can experience. While there are many different elements that need to be considered, one of the most important are the children involved. Making sure all children involved in a divorce are cared for properly is difficult on its own, but the matter of child support can be messy as well. Sometimes, a situation can arise in which one spouse doesn't pay the child support they are tasked with. Thankfully, there are options available that can help enforce child support payments.

What can invalidate a prenuptial agreement?

In the past, we have spoken about the benefits of drafting legal document prior to or after a marriage. Creating a prenuptial agreement before a wedding may feel like an uncomfortable discussion to have, but it is a discussion that should be, at very least, considered. For couples who decide to create a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it is also important to understand what is required and what could potentially nullify or invalidate a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt determine child custody arrangement

In September, fans around the world learned that celebrity couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, affectionately known as "Brangelina", had decided to call it quits. The two had been together for 12 years and married for two years. Last week, it was announced that Angelina Jolie has been awarded sole custody of the ex-couple's six children, ranging in age from 8 to 15. According to sources from Jolie, the joint agreement was reached by both parties, although a few weeks ago it was reported that Pitt presumably requested joint custody in court.

Child Support extends beyond basic necessities

During a divorce, nearly everything changes in the lives of all parties involved, including both spouses, family and friends of the divorcing couple and of course the children. While the parents need to go through a lengthy process establishing child custody, determining property division and deciding on new living arrangements, children must try to understand what is happening and make appropriate adjustments. During this time, it is important to protect the best interests of the children. In many cases, this means establishing child support for the custodial parent.
