Billions in child support unpaid, may leave parents struggling

In Arkansas, raising a child can be quite expensive even when a couple is together, but it can be made more complicated when a couple is no longer together. Child support seeks to ease the burden placed on the custodial parent by requiring the noncustodial parent to make monthly payments to the custodial parent, thus helping financially raising the child. While full, on-time child support payments are the ideal, the truth of the matter for many parents is far from it.

Clint Eastwood seeks to deny wife spousal support

Some individuals may tire of hearing about celebrity divorces, but they can serve as powerful examples of legal battles in which any divorcing couple can become embroiled. Celebrities, just like every day average Arkansas residents, often must deal with property division, child custody, child support, visitation rights, and spousal support. The increased media attention paid to these high-profile divorces allows individuals who may not be familiar with divorce's legal issues to become familiar with the process.

Many Americans believe that important decisions regarding social issues should be left for each state to decide. With regard to same-sex marriage, that has been the case as homosexual couples have sought the ability to be married in the same manner as heterosexual couples. In Arkansas, voters decided in 2004 to define marriage as between one man and one woman. However, almost ten years later, the U.S. Supreme Court supported gay marriage.

Celebrity couple separates: Diggs, Menzel take a break

One of the most difficult issues to navigate in divorce is child custody -- and yet, at the same time, it can also be one of the easiest. What we mean by the latter is that most divorcing couples with a child agree to a joint custody arrangement, thereby allowing each parent to have an active role in their kid's life. They'll still get to see their son or daughter on a frequent basis, and play an active role in their development.
