Addressing the financial needs of children after divorce

On Behalf of | Nov 17, 2016 | Firm News |

Most parents in Washington are like others throughout the nation who work hard and always try to do what is best for their children. When a divorce occurs, disagreements regarding that topic may arise between former spouses. Some issues in particular, such as what children’s financial needs may be, are especially prone to argument; in fact, many situations may seem impossible to resolve without outside intervention and guidance.

Individual lifestyles obviously change after divorce. In many families, a parent who has always stayed home to raise children may suddenly be thrust into the workplace in order to make ends meet. Even after employment is secured, providing for a child’s temporal needs can be quite challenging, given the current state of the economy.

Medical expenses, educational fees and other financial matters may need to be addressed before an adequate co-parenting plan can be forged for the future. If a former spouse refuses to cooperate and compromise, things can get pretty intense. For this and many other reasons, it is often best to consult with an experienced family law attorney before making any final decisions.
