For many people, divorce is no easy task. To make matters worse, some parents have a considerably harder time raising their child after splitting up with their spouse because they are not receiving the child support they are owed. At Kalinoski Law Offices P.C., we understand the myriad of factors that can influence child support issues for parents in Scranton, and other parts of Pennsylvania, and we strive to help people who are owed back child support.
With regard to child support, every situation is different. In some cases, parents are incapable of making child support payments because of an unexpected financial hardship. On the other hand, some parents have the ability to make their child support payments, but choose not to. Although a child support dispute can be incredibly difficult for everyone involved, it is crucial for both parents to make the best interests of the child a top priority.
From extracurricular expenses to other costs, such as medical needs and every day expenses, there are many reasons why raising a child is so expensive. If you are a parent who is struggling with this, you should do everything in your ability to work towards an outcome that is successful for both you and your child. It is also important to be aware of certain child support issues, such as a parent concealing their income, that may impact your circumstances.
