How much are American parents owed in unpaid child support?

For parents, divorce sometimes leads to a number of legal issues, from child custody to alimony. However, child support can be especially stressful and may have a significant impact on both parents in numerous ways. For example, a custodial parent who can't pay for their child's medical expenses or everyday expenses may experience serious financial challenges when they don't receive the child support they are owed. On the other hand, child support enforcement can lead to jail time and other penalties for parents who are unable or not willing to take care of their child support responsibilities. In Belleville, and across Illinois, it is pivotal for parents who are struggling with child support to address their circumstances appropriately.

Helping people prepare for a high asset divorce

When someone is getting ready to file for divorce, they may experience a considerable amount of anxiety and have a plethora of concerns. However, for those who are preparing for a high asset divorce, separation can be even more distressing. At Johnson & Johnson, we understand that high asset divorces can be more demanding and strive to make separation less difficult for our clients. In Belleville, and across the state of Illinois, those who approach divorce appropriately may be able to secure a more favorable outcome.

Which assets are considered non-marital property?

For couples across the country, divorce is a stressful process. Not only do some people have to deal with strong emotions and confusion over divorce laws, but there are all sorts of divorce legal issues that a couple may face, such as child support, spousal support and property division. If you are preparing to separate from your spouse, it is important to understand which assets are considered separate (non-marital) property and prepare for the possible financial impact of divorce. In Belleville, Illinois, and throughout the U.S., people who fully understand how divorce could affect them may have an easier time moving forward.

Reviewing methods used to establish parentage

For parents, there are a number of reasons why it is important to establish paternity. For example, a child's mother may want to prove that someone is the father of their child in order to receive child support. Additionally, a father who is requesting visitation rights or involved in a custody issue may also wish to establish paternity in order to spend time with their child. In Belleville, Illinois, and throughout the United States, it is vital for parents who want to establish legal paternity to carefully assess their situation.

Evaluating the prevalence of divorce

When someone decides to file for divorce, they may have to deal with a host of legal matters, from the division of marital property to spousal support and child custody. In Belleville, Illinois, and the rest of America, many people tie the knot and expect to remain married for the rest of their life. However, divorce has become rather prevalent in the United States and it is imperative for anyone who is thinking about separating from their spouse to understand some of the issues they may face and prepare for divorce properly.
