Child Support After Divorce

When deciding to divorce, the business was not just separation. Usually, the result of a divorce award requires the parents (especially the father) to provide financial support for the child and the ex-wife. However, in practice, many ex-husbands neglect this obligation. Then, what should be done so that the ex-husband wants to share the costs of the children’s needs?

Before you “fight” in court, it’s good to know the laws. Namely, the civil legal basis for financial support for children whose parents are divorced.
Unfortunately, the rules that have been established do not run the risk of being punished, which could have a fearful or deterrent effect if the ex-husband broke them. As a result, if a husband or father does not comply with the court’s decision on child support, then the lawsuit will be in vain.

If the divorce ends well, compromise and personal approaches can be made to solve the problem. However, if the divorce ends badly, it is certainly difficult for the wife or mother and children to discuss this together with the ex-husband.
Therefore, before ‘fighting’, it is better if you have preparations, including:

  • Discuss child support payments before deciding to divorce. Make a deal before going to a divorce hearing. Apart from not wasting your time, this method can also make your ex-husband better understand the children’s needs.
  • Get rid of each other’s egos, and think about the interests of the children.
  • Describe the need for child support in Oklahoma in detail, whether the ex-husband will provide it or not. At least, based on the decree, you have evidence, so that when questioned in the future, do not corner you.
  • When submitting the contents of the allowance, don’t just think about the monthly fee for current needs. Also, take into account their future by applying for education or health insurance.
  • Don’t depend 100% on your ex-husband. Before you truly ‘leave’ your husband, it’s best if you have an income of your own. It’s really hard if you don’t work. Therefore, if you have such assets, you can use part of it for business, and part of it for savings. At least, until you get a steady job.
