Interfering with parenting time

When it comes to legal issues involving family matters, parents and children may experience a whirlwind of emotions. To make things even more complicated, some families in this position are trying to adjust to life after a divorce. In Boston, and communities across Massachusetts, it is crucial for parents who have a child custody order or visitation schedule to understand their rights and avoid any behaviors that violate these agreements.

Do I have to pay interest on back child support?

If you are required to make child support payments, you may find yourself unable to fulfill your obligations for any number of reasons. For example, you may have suffered an unexpected medical problem or recently lost your job. In Boston, Massachusetts, the consequences associated with missing child support payments can be very damaging. While some people focus on very serious matters, such as being taken into custody, unpaid child support can also result in interest and other types of financial penalties.

Unpaid child support and tax refunds

Whether a parent is arrested or loses sleep at night because of significant anxiety, back child support can create all sorts of hardships for non-custodial parents and custodial parents alike. However, parents who have found themselves unable to make child support payments may also have their tax refunds intercepted in Boston, and cities across Massachusetts. According to the Internal Revenue Service, those who are behind on child support could have their federal tax refund intercepted by the Bureau of the Fiscal Service.

Unpaid child support and visitation

The judge is the one who makes the final determination on what he or she believes is in your child’s best interests regarding custody and support during your divorce in Massachusetts. While a number of different factors affect how your child’s life is divided between you and the other parent, child support is often much more clear-cut. Paying child support on a tight budget may not be so straightforward, though. We at Kajko, Weisman and Colasanti, LLP, often provide legal advice to parents who have fallen behind in their child support payments.

Can divorcing parents learn from the Brangelina custody battle?

As a parent who is divorcing in Massachusetts, and you may be wondering how to address your custody issues in a way that prevents your child from undergoing emotional stress. Unless you are part of a high profile couple, you are probably not being subjected to close media scrutiny such as that directed at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Still, that family will have some of the same challenges as you and your spouse in helping their children deal with the fallout from the split.
