Securing child support for children's financial needs

People in New York who have children know that raising them can be expensive. They need food, clothing and shelter, but that is just the basics. There are medical needs, extracurricular activities, entertainment and many other expenses. These expenses are there whether the parents are married or divorced. However, when parents are divorced it can be a little more difficult to figure out how to ensure both parents contribute to these expenses.

Prenuptial agreements and high asset couples in New York

When people get married in New York, they are generally in love and want to share the rest of their lives together. Most do not think about divorce when they are planning the wedding. However, many marriages do end in divorce, and undoing a life that two people made one is not an easy task. This can be especially true for high net-worth couples. The more assets a couple has in their possession, the more they will have to divide in the event of a high asset divorce.

Drew Barrymore intends to keep family first in divorce

Fans of actress Drew Barrymore in New York may be aware that she is in the process of divorcing her husband, Will Kopelman. The couple has two children together, one three years of age and the other nearly two-years-old. Barrymore recently issued a statement indicating that the couple is focused on maintaining their family even though the couple will be divorced. The children will be the main focus for the couple.

What happens if a couple resolves a divorce at mediation?

Divorce can be a very difficult and emotional time for people in New York. There may be anger, sadness, anxiety and many other emotions divorcing spouses may go through. However, while this is an emotional time, major decisions must be made as the couple transforms from living together to separate lives.

How long may a parent be obligated to pay child support?

Being a parent in New York can be a lifetime job. Even after children move out, many still rely on their parents for love and support as well as financial resources. Even though the parent will always be a parent, there does come a time when the child becomes a legal adult and parents are no longer obligated to financially support them. This is true whether the parents of the child are married or divorced.
