Business Income and Child Support Cases

The determination of child support payments is a very complicated process.  These payments are based off of how much available income a parent might have.  The formula used to determine these payments varies greatly from state to state, and a legal professional is often necessary to effect a fair result.

One of the complications that can arise during these negotiations is if the non-custodial parents owns a business.  Business income presents more challenges for the court because of the variable nature of the income, and a lack of automatic withholding for taxes and business expenses should be taken into account.  Many people wonder if the court should look at these expenses in a certain light, and each state is different in its appraisal of these revenue streams.  Income from a new business that is started up should definitely be considered with regard to the possibility of higher child support payments.

Due to the complicated nature of both business income and child support payments, a legal professional can prove to be very useful here.  Consulting with one of these individuals is a good first step in determining what your options might be moving forward.  Every state will review this income in a different light, for this reason it is vital to get advice from a legal professional who knows what they are doing.

When Your Wife Prevents You From Seeing Your Kids

If you are divorced and are having trouble seeing your children because of your ex-wife, then you should think about how to attain access through the courts.  If you were not able to keep your marriage together that does not mean that you cannot spend time with your children.  If you are granted visitation as part of your divorce decree, she does not have any legal reason to interfere with your visitation rights.  You need to schedule an appointment with a legal professional if you feel as if someone is attempting to interfere with your rights to see your children.

Your ex-wife could be using any excuse she can think of in order to keep you away from your children.  She might tell people that the children are not interested in seeing you, or that they are too busy.  Whatever the case is it is important to get in touch with a legal professional who can help to explain what your options are.  The sooner you begin the legal process to explain your situation the sooner you might be able to see your kids again.

You can find a number of different options with which to advocate your position, it is simply a matter of you being able to find the right strategy for your situation.  These are precious moments that you should do your best to preserve, and sometimes the legal process is one of the best way to do this.

Preventing Your Ex-Wife From Moving Away With Your Children

After a divorce has occurred your ex-wife may want to move away to another state, this can disrupt the custody arrangements you might have with her as far as visitation and other responsibilities go.  Moves such as this can be very strenuous on a relationship between a parent and their children, and for this reason many people choose to try and have something done about it in court.   A move within the same state that still has a considerable amount of distance is still something that can be seen as disruptive for both the children and the parent.

Many parents are justifiably upset when their children might be moved really far away by the custodial parent, and as a result they might need to consult with a legal professional in order to have your interests represented in court.  Seeking out the right legal professionals is going to allow someone to navigate the legal system more easily, and have some advice provided.

Addressing your concerns with a legal professional is something that can allow someone to bring the matter before the court in order to attempt to find a solution.  The court will consider how much time has passed and whether or not the needs of the child have changed.  These assessments are done on a case by case basis, and for this reason it is important to have a legal professional around.  Any move can be brought to the attention of the court, but it is not a guarantee.

How to Treat Children During a Divorce

Divorce is an emotionally jarring experience for everyone, but for children especially it can be traumatic. It is important for the sake of the children that a divorce be as smooth and expedited as possible, otherwise the children can be adversely affected.

Sometimes children can feel like a divorce is their fault, and it is vital that both parents reassure the child in order to ensure they know they are loved. This can go a long way in easing the pain a child might feel, and once a divorce has been finalized it is a good idea to keep any conflicts calm and at a minimum. Being punctual for visits will help as well as limiting the number of times a visit might have to be re-scheduled.

Being careful not to bring a child into an argument will go a long way in keeping them out of the line of fire, because the last thing you want is to make them feel guilty for your conflicts. Maintaining a certain level of civility between yourself and your ex-spouse is something that you should work hard to achieve. The temptation to use children as messengers or spies needs to be resisted, children need to be left to enjoy their childhood.

Bottom line, try not to bring your kids into the drama of a divorce. They deserve better than that.

Visitation Rights that Change Over Time

A common arrangement for the custody of children after a divorce has taken place is for fathers to be awarded visitation rights.  The amount of time you spend with your children can be greater than other people you have known in similar circumstances, it relies heavily on what you want and what is possible.  Your legal professional can go over what is typically possible in your area, and this should provide you with a clear picture of how to proceed.

Visitation schedules vary greatly based on the family and that family’s particular point in time.  As things move along it will be advantageous to take the chance to see what sorts of things might be coming up in the future.  Keeping a healthy relationship with your ex-spouse will make it a whole lot easier to address the changes that are likely to come up as life moves along.  While there are no guarantees, it never hurts to just try your best to be nice to someone.

An involved father is vital to the success of  their children.  If they are stable and a positive influence on the children a judge is usually far more likely to grant them visitation on a regular basis going forward.

Finding Out if Your Ex-Wife is in Contempt of Court

After a divorce, both parents are obligated and are legally bound to keep their side of the divorce decree.   Although sometimes the arrangement is not adhered to, and a father may have to seek out legal mediation.  An ex-wife who is not allowing court-ordered visitation, may be violating a court order, and the court might have to intervene

If an ex-wife is not living up their end of the divorce decree, one might want to contact a legal professional for advice.  One option that a legal professional may recommend is asking the court for a motion of contempt.

Basically, a person is guilty of contempt for not doing what the court has ordered them to do.  Contempt is very specific to an individual case, so it is imperative that a legal professional be consulted before attempting to file contempt charges against your ex-wife.

The court has the ability to levy fines, award visitation as compensation or even amend custody agreements in cases of contempt.  Speak to a legal professional to see whether or not you have a case.
