Tips for handling a child support hearing

If you and your co-parent aren't able to reach an agreement on the amount of child support, you'll have to take the issue to a judge to decide. Child support hearings often occur during divorce proceedings. However, if one of you later seeks a modification to the amount currently being paid, a child support hearing will be necessary if the proposed modification is challenged.

Dealing with the thorny issue of stepparents and discipline

When divorced parents with primary custody of their kids remarry, their new spouses are a big part of their kids' lives. These stepparents often assume many parenting responsibilities -- particularly if the other biological/legal parent lives far away or has little regular contact with the kids.

What kind of expenses should child support cover?

If you're a divorcing (or soon-to-be divorcing) parent, whether you'll be the one receiving or paying child support, it's essential to understand what kind of expenses it's intended to cover. Many people think that child support is only supposed to take care of a child's minimum necessities, such as clothing, food, housing and perhaps medical care and school supplies. However, it's much broader than that.

How much input should your kids have in your parenting plan?

Working out a custody agreement and parenting plan can be one of the most difficult and conflict-ridden parts of a divorce. Both parents sincerely believe that they have their children's best interests at heart. However, they may have very different views about what those are.
