Sacrificing lifestyle when parents decline to pay child support

When a couple in Ohio decides to split and they have children, one of the major points of discussion is how each parent will financially support the kids over the years. Aside from dividing the assets, arranging child custody and a number of other obligations that need to be decided on, child support is a topic that is often discussed, and one that is likely to be visited again and again as the children grow.

Dinner debacle ends with possible child custody modification

Divorce happens in Ohio for a number of reasons. It is not uncommon for couples to determine that they entered marriage hastily and after experiencing married life together they can clearly see that their union was not meant to be. Other times financial challenges creep into a marriage and slowly unravel its footings. Regardless of why divorce happens, when children are involved child custody issues often arise.

Domestic abuse may cause chronic maladies

Domestic violence and abuse in Ohio comes in many forms. Physical, verbal and emotional abuse may be among the most commonly known types of abuse, but whatever method an abuser uses, there are often long lasting physical and psychological maladies that a domestic abuse victim suffers.

Spousal support is not a new concept

Financially supporting a former spouse in Ohio is not something that has been enacted recently. In fact, ancient legal texts record the existence of alimony, an arrangement that existed as far back as the First Babylonian Dynasty. While today’s spousal support arrangements may differ from those in Hammurabi’s day, the concept remains. The question posed now, however, is whether or not this ancient tradition is offensive to today’s modern men and women.
