Who pays for your kids' healthcare?

38821047_S.jpgWhile going through a divorce in Bloomington, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse may disagree over many things; one of the few topics that you both can typically agree upon, however, is the importance of seeing to your kids' needs. Yet even that can lead to discord when issues such as who should be responsible for covering the children's healthcare costs come up. If your kids were covered under yours (or your ex-spouse's) group health plan during the marriage, then the expectation will likely be that coverage should continue after your divorce. That may be true in some cases, yet not in others. Knowing who needs to carry insurance on the kids should be something you understand going into your divorce proceedings. 

Singer jailed in Cook County over child support arrears

18433345_S.jpgIf asked, most divorced parents in Bloomington might say that they have no issue with paying child support. Even if they happen to harbor resentment towards their ex-spouses, they may understand that their child support payments are not meant for their ex-spouses' benefit, but rather to assist their children. Sadly, disputes between former spouses may ultimately lead to accusations of one withholding child support as a form of punishment. 

Renowned model agrees to child support obligation

40164835_S.jpgMost in Bloomington may recognize the need for divorced parents to pay child support in order to ensure that their kids are well-cared for. Yet the amount that is actually needed may often become a hot topic for debate. Many may think that all that should be required in child support is what is needed to meet a kid's basic needs (e.g., food, clothing, shelter, health care). they often may base that number of what their individual frames of references are. For this reason, news of the large amounts that divorcing celebrities are ordered to pay on child support often seem astonishing. 

Charges await man who fled due to unpaid child support

58238255_S.jpgGiven the deep love that most parents in Bloomington likely have for their children, the willingness to pay child support may never be an issue. The ability to, however, may be a different story. Oftentimes, one circumstances can change from those the enjoyed when their child support obligations were first determined. Yet unforeseen obstacles such as the loss of a job, a reduction in working hours or other financial considerations may ultimately make meeting one's child support obligation virtually impossible. When such a scenario arises, however, some might fear petitioning the court to have their payments reduced for fear of being viewed as not wanting to support their kids. 

How is child support determined in Illinois?

37314719_S (2).jpgWhen you choose to seek a divorce from your spouse in Bloomington, one of the first important points to enter your mind will likely by how you will support your children. The deterioration of your relationship with your spouse has little bearing on your feelings towards your children, so your willingness to continue to provide for them is likely not an issue. Having said that, you also do not want to be left having to bear the entire burden of doing so if it is not necessary. This speculation all leads to one simple question: how does the state determine child support?
