What happens when parents fail to pay child support?

Whether you have child support obligations as a non-custodial parent or are counting on these payments to help raise your child, back child support can make life hard. When a non-custodial parent falls behind on child support for one reason or another, both parties may face hardships. For example, failing to pay child support in Michigan may result in the garnishment of wages or tax refunds, prison and financial penalties. However, these missed payments can also affect children and custodial parents.

Divorce and kids returning to school

There are a multitude of considerations you may have to go over with regard to divorce. For example, you and your marital partner may disagree about how property will be split up, or you could find yourself involved in a difficult custody dispute or stressed out because of a child support order. If you have children, divorce can present additional challenges. Our law firm knows that parents in Rochester and other parts of Michigan may have a hard time discussing divorce with their children. Moreover, there are certain times of year, such as during holidays and when kids are preparing to head back to school after summer break, when talking about divorce can be even more difficult.

Moreover, it is important to be aware of other ways divorce could affect you, such as the impact it might have on your taxes.

Family-owned businesses and divorce

If you and the person you are married to have been discussing divorce, there may be a number of unique details surrounding your situation that can have an impact on your decision to split up and life afterward. For example, a number of questions may be raised if you have children or are unsure of how your marital property will be divided.
