New regulations for inmate child support issued

After South Carolina courts have issued child support orders, some parents who are ordered to pay end up being incarcerated after committing criminal offenses. When inmates are in prison, they make very little money. Consequently, many inmates who have child support orders leave prison facing substantial amounts of delinquent child support debts.

Retirement benefits possible even decades after divorce

Social Security rules contain provisions for ex-spouses that allow for the payout of benefits even decades after a divorce. People who had been married for at least 10 years may be missing out on retirement funds by not investigating their benefits compared to those of their ex-partner. Claiming benefits after a divorce requires meeting certain criteria. The formulas determining the benefit totals are complex as well.

How divorced parents can compromise if one relocates

One problem a divorced South Carolina parent might run into is the other parent moving to be closer to a new partner. Even if the parent makes an effort to not move too far away, there still may be an additional commuting burden for the other one. The situation may worsen if the parent dislikes the new partner and does not like the child spending time with them. However, the first thing parents must do in a situation like this is set aside their own conflicts and focus on what is best for the child.

Children benefit from child support agreements

Studies show that single-parent households are more likely to be poor than households with two parents. Receiving child support can help a single parent with expenses, but the number of parents receiving child support is on the decline. Just 49 percent of parents in 2014 had a formal child support agreement in place. This was down 11 percentage points from the numbers a decade earlier. Single South Carolina parents may want to consider getting a formal child support agreement because experts say that children in single-parent households benefit from receiving child support in a number of ways.

Why more younger people want prenups

While there is sometimes a negative stigma attached to prenuptial agreements, there are many reasons that any couple might need one before tying the knot. South Carolina residents might like to know about a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers that found that millennials are entering into one comparatively frequently.
