Addressing your child support needs during divorce

redsharkdigital | January 11, 2018

It is no doubt that when you have a child you are faced with a multitude of responsibilities. While some of these come naturally, others are more obvious and have to continually be addressed. Raising a child can be costly; thus, parents often work to bring in enough financial recourses so these needs are met. But, when parents divorce, they are no longer a unit working to pay for the needs of their child. Thus, child support is frequently requested during dissolution, as it is the only way to ensure that the financial needs of the child will continually be met.

The topic of child support, while necessary, is not always easy to address. Some parents might feel helpless, knowing that they require the financial assistance of their ex to care for their child. Other parents might feel defeated or used, as their personal finances are being explored and cut into. Although this can spark a wide variety of emotions, it is vital that parents in North Carolina understand how best to work through this issue.
