Key points about child support in a Wisconsin family law case

Family law disputes in Wisconsin are rarely easy. One issue that is particularly concerning is child support. Parents will often have questions about various aspects of their case, including whether post-decree modifications are possible and whether there are tax considerations.

More courts encouraging shared parenting duties post-divorce

While mothers in Wisconsin and other parts of the country are still likely to get more time with their kids in the event of a divorce, dads are no longer being kept out of the parenting loop. Over the years, the tendency to side with the mother has shifted to the point where more courts are encouraging divorcing parents to share parenting duties instead of automatically opting for sole custody.

The pros and cons of assuming a mortgage after divorce

When a Wisconsin resident is awarded the family home during a divorce, there are a lot of serious questions they will need to answer. They will need to look at who will live in the home and who can afford to actually stay in it. These are serious matters that need to be considered. If the decision is not to sell the home, a new group of options open up.

Children, divorce, texting and social media

There are many reasons parents in Wisconsin should be concerned about the usage of social media and texting by their children. However, in cases in which the parents have divorced, the use of the modern forms of communication can be beneficial. This is according to the results of a study that evaluated parent-child relationships after a divorce.

How people can prepare for divorce

Divorce can be a costly and difficult process, so one of the first steps that people in Wisconsin should take is making sure they want to go through with it. They should also do some research, including looking into state laws and finding out which professionals may be helpful. For example, in addition to an attorney, a person may want to hire a therapist.

Money, cheating and fighting most likely to end a marriage

Despite declining divorce rates, there is no guarantee that a couple in Wisconsin won't see their marriage come to an end. While infidelity or fighting are among the most common reasons why divorces occur, they are not the only ones. For instance, if a couple is having financial problems, it could indicate that the nuptials will not last. This is because a lack of money can put stress on a relationship that can cause it to fail.

Divorce after an illness

When Wisconsin couples get married, their marriage vows may contain a promise to stick together "in sickness and in health". However, there is some evidence that suggests that not all spouses are up to this challenge.

Divorce announcement could divide fortune of Amazon founder

The news that Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, the world's richest man, will end his marriage easily inspires thoughts about how the divorce will divide the fortune that he has amassed during his marriage. When people in Wisconsin get divorces, they also need to divide their marital assets, and speculation about how the Bezoses will divide their shared assets reveals issues that often accompany high-asset divorces.

How to get back child support

Parents in Wisconsin and throughout the country may need to take steps to collect child support that they are owed. In some cases, this means asking a judge to compel the other parent to pay a past-due balance. Parents will generally pursue back support in a state court, but it may be possible to do so in a federal court in certain instances.
