Perhaps your marriage has collapsed. Or perhaps you were never married. Either way, if you have custody of the kids, your first thought is probably about how you will manage to support them. Raising a child is hard enough without having to worry about child support payments.
At FindLaw, we blog regularly on issues related to family law and divorce, and there is a lot of good information on these topics in our posts. However, it can be a little time consuming to read through all of the posts, digest the material, and attempt to apply it to your situation.
We understand that divorce and child custody battles, in addition to everyday life and caring for your children can consume all of your time. And then some. We aren't that hurt that you haven't read every post in our archive. Instead, we've condensed the information into a much more manageable form.
As part of our continued effort to help our readers understand their rights and our desire to help them enforce those rights, we are now releasing free guides on various legal topics that affect everyone.
The FindLaw Guide to Getting Child Support Payments is available now for our readers. If, after reading the guide, you have more questions, feel free to drop by FindLaw Answers and ask our community for assistance.
