What to do if you cannot afford child support payments

If the court has ordered you to pay child support in New Hampshire, you may be wondering what your options are if you cannot afford to make the payments. You may expect for your ex-spouse to be understanding of your situation and allow you to catch up on child support payments when you can at a later date. However, your ex has no obligation to do that. 

What you should know about parenting plans in divorce

When you are going through a divorce, it is vital to keep your children in mind. Courts favor parents working together to determine the best course of action in regards to custody. If two parents agree to settle custody matters between them, they must formulate a parenting plan.

What is an aggravated DWI?

Just recently, a New Hampshire state trooper attempted to stop a car for lane control violations. It was a Saturday evening, just before midnight. Instead of pulling over, the driver led the trooper on a chase on Route 101. When the police finally apprehended him, without incident, they arrested him on multiple charges, including aggravated DWI, second offense DWI, reckless operation and more. 

An alternative to co-parenting

During a high-conflict divorce, co-parenting might feel like a fantasy. Family courts want both parents involved in the children’s lives even though they may no longer be married. Co-parenting might be ideal, but there is an alternative. It is called parallel parenting, in which parents have very limited contact with each other. In parallel parenting, the parents disconnect from each other but not the children. Each parent abides by the parenting plan which they worked out before the finalization of the divorce. 

Is co-parenting a good option for your post-divorce family?

Finding ways to parent with a divorced partner is not always easy, but you will have to deal with the other parent for the rest of your life. Co-parenting, or shared custody, is the best option, according to HelpGuide.org. Children whose divorced parents have a cooperative relationship are more secure and have better self-esteem. These children typically have good problem-solving skills because they have a healthy example to follow.
