Judge sets spousal and child support amounts in abuse case

Each state has its own regulations when setting child support payments. Pennsylvania has a formula by which support is determined, although special circumstances may be a consideration that would cause the court to deviate from the set formula. One judge has determined spousal and child support for a woman who was a victim of domestic violence by her husband.

Noncustodial parent pays sizeable amount in child support

Parents in Pennsylvania who are primary custodians often struggle financially without a monthly child support payment from their ex. The amount of child support is determined differently in each state, using a variety of factors. One businessman is expected to pay more support each month than many people make in a year.

Kevin Federline wants child support revision with Britney Spears

Pennsylvania readers have not seen much in the news about Britney Spears since her infamous breakdown in 2007, but she is making minor headlines now, thanks to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. The couple had two boys during their three-year marriage, and Britney has been paying Kevin child support. Kevin is now asking for a second look at their child support order.

Woman stretching finances due to lack of child support

Custodial parents in Pennsylvania know just how important a regular child support payment can be. Many know the problems that will arise without that payment. Unfortunately, two former spouses have a familiar and two-sided version of the same child support story.

Father requests leniency on child support sum

Most Pennsylvania parents know just how important child support payments are in providing a somewhat comfortable lifestyle for their children. Should the parent who supplies those child support payments be unable to do so for any reason, there is the danger that some of the most basic needs of those children may not be met. For those parents, the sum of the financial support they owe accrues until the time comes when they are able to pay what they owe. Such is the case for one father who was released from prison and finding that he owed nearly $40,000 to the mother of his son.

Child support demands for Harvey Weinstein

There has been almost nothing more prevalent in the news the past couple of months than the claims of sexual assault and harassment that has allegedly run rampant in the entertainment industry for decades. It may not surprise Pennsylvania residents that Eve Chilton, Harvey Weinstein's first wife, is demanding a lump sum of child support to be paid immediately. She is worried that he will not be able to meet his child support requirements once he has to pay on the lawsuits against him.

Non-payment of child support could land father in jail

Every divorced parent in Pennsylvania should know there is an obligation for the noncustodial parent to financially support the children, even if visitation is limited or nonexistent. If court-ordered child support is not paid, wages are often garnished and made available to the custodial parent. One man owes nearly $60,000 in child support and may have to serve jail time if he does not pay.

Rapper Offset addresses child support request

Parents in Pennsylvania know their main job of raising their children takes a lot of sacrifice. When the two parents are no longer together, those sacrifices don't end. Child support, spending time as a new family unit and general availability to the kids at any time should always be priorities no matter the relationship between the former couple. Offset, a rapper with the group Migos, is being asked for additional child support from his former love interest, Justine Watson.

Spousal support revisited by David Hasselhoff and Pamela Bach

When a Pennsylvania marriage ends, there is often a court order for one parent to provide financial support for any children born as a result of the union. What is not always instructed, however, is the payment of spousal support. Should a former spouse not need financial assistance after the divorce, there is no such directive in the divorce agreement. David Hasselhoff and his ex-wife, Pamela Bach, are waging a legal battle against each other over spousal support.

Child support case for Miguel Cabrera gets ugly

The typical Pennsylvania divorced parents have entered into a child support agreement where the monthly payments by the noncustodial parent are enough to meet the basic needs of the child plus a little more, if his or her earnings allow. The support orders for highly-paid celebrities and others at the wealthy end of the financial spectrum often provide a substantially greater sum. Belkis Rodriguez, the former mistress to Miguel Cabrera and the apparent mother of two of his children is taking him back to court for an increase in the amount of child support he pays her each month.
