Determining the length of time someone will receive alimony

When two people are getting divorced, the topic of spousal support or alimony may be discussed, particularly when one spouse makes a request to receive it. Following this request, courts may examine certain factors and determine if the requesting party will receive spousal support or not. Oftentimes, when spousal support is awarded to one spouse, it is to help the one who is the lower or non-wage earner maintain the standard of living that they had during the marriage.

Under what circumstances is paternity assumed?

When a father wants to be a part of his child's life it is a good thing. This means that the child will grow up with both a mother and father in his or her life and may not suffer the negative effects of an absent father. While a man may want to be present in the life of his child, there have been some situations where men have been asked to prove that they are in fact the father of the children; it is common for them to be asked to take a paternity test. This is done before they could be awarded any type of custody or exercise their rights as a father.

Why you should request to change your child support order

When a parent is awarded custody of their child, it is common for the other parent to have to pay child support. The courts decide upon the amount of child support that is to be paid by evaluating certain criteria. Even though these criteria may result in a parent paying a certain amount in child support, this doesn't mean they will have to continue to pay that specific amount every month.

What is fixed visitation?

Child custody disputes can quickly turn nasty, especially if both parents are seeking sole custody of their child. Even though both parents have a preference of what type of child custody they want, the courts don't always consider the desires of the parents. In fact, it is not uncommon for one parent to have sole custody and the other to only have visitation rights.

What are the legal requirements for marriage?

When it comes to family law, there are various areas that may require a person to obtain the services of a lawyer. Although some people dealing with certain family law issues may not necessarily need a lawyer, they have the right to consult with one. It could be for something as difficult as two parents battling for custody over their children or as simple as marriage.

Why an attorney can assist when you request spousal support

When two people are divorcing, there are many issues that can arise that may make the process quickly turn from easy to difficult. Along with the discussion of dividing property and child support, spousal support could also be a topic to discuss should one spouse request it.

Child abuse claim may affect a father's rights

Fathers' rights are important for many men, as these rights affect the relationship men have with their children. Once paternity is determined, the child's father is able to pursue custody. While many men find themselves in heated disputes in which they are fighting for custody of their child with the mother, they can also find themselves in a similar dispute with the courts.
