Massachusetts parents learn from public child support struggles

There are few people who have gone through a divorce and said it was a blissful process. Many times, it is a contentious battle filled with strong emotions. For those without children who seek divorce, a relatively clean break can be made; however, those with children are forever attached to one another through their children even after the final divorce decree has been announced. When issues of child support are on the table, proceedings can become and remain bitter. Parents in Massachusetts can learn this lesson by following the story of Jermaine Jackson, a famous member of the Jackson 5.

Massachusetts child support arrears: Help is available

Unpaid child support is a significant problem in Massachusetts today. Women all over the state are trying desperately to make ends meet on their incomes alone because the father of their child or children is not paying his court-ordered child support payments. Unfortunately, many of those who are not receiving regular child support payments have a very difficult time in providing for their families.

Massachusetts father charged for not paying child support

Children in single parent households often depend upon income from a non-custodial parent in order to have their needs met. Child support payments are intended to meet these needs, which is why courts assign parents to make the payments. When parents are unable to do this, there can be severe consequences for that parent. One father in Massachusetts recently discovered this.

Reducing child support payments may give children more money

Massachusetts may benefit from an idea that other states are starting to use. The idea: If low-income parents have lower required child support payments, children might actually receive more financial benefit from child support. It may seem like an unconventional approach, but the logic behind the idea is simple.
