We cannot control the way time impacts relationships. For married couples in California, time could mean distance and a union that is no longer built with love. Spouses can grow apart, meaning they have to make some challenging decisions. These choices can be major, as they could impact a family versus just two spouses. When parents divorce, no matter the reason, the needs of the children must take center stage. This is especially true when it comes to their wellbeing and upbringing.
Ensuring that the financial needs of the children are met is crucial in the divorce process. Child support is often necessary to guarantee that both parents are able to maintain the finances needed to raise his or her child. Because one parent might be the breadwinner while the other the primary caregiver, there can be major gaps in income.
In order to address these financial gaps and maintain the custody agreement reached by divorcing parent, the issue of child support must be resolved.
