When a couple goes through a divorce, it means that they not only separate physically and emotionally but financially, too. Financial separation can be one of the most complex issues in a divorce because spouses are likely to have become financially intertwined over the years. It's also probable that one spouse will be set to suffer financially as a result of the divorce and the subsequent division of assets.
When you obtain an order for child support, the intent is to ensure that the child in question is financially supported by both parents. The cost of raising a child is high, not just because of the need for essentials like diapers and food. For example, custodial parents will likely need to pay higher costs for suitable housing accommodations for their children.
