Going through a divorce often brings out the worst in people. It can be easy to take the pain and rejection that comes from a divorce and turn it into anger. Unquestionably, for many families, one of the most contentious issues during a divorce is child custody and support.
Custody of minor children and the requirement for child support payments are often the most hotly contested issues during a divorce. Often, the person who files for the divorce is allowed to file a temporary support and custody order until the divorce is finalized by the courts. Unfortunately, not all parents take their obligations for child support seriously. For the custodial parent, the failure of one's soon-to-be ex-spouse to comply with the ordered support can have real financial repercussions. If you are not receiving child support as ordered, you should take immediate steps to have the order enforced.
