Episode-5-Long term considerations with child support-10-19-2016

Anouk and Jessica continue to discuss child support. In this episode they focus on the importance of documenting child support payments, financial disclosure, and annual reviews. They also explore the practical use of an Annual Income Report, and how to determine child support if the income is non-taxable. They also discuss issues that come up frequently when individuals see a lawyer for the first time, including: the practice of withholding child support when a payor does not have time with children, who decides how child support dollars are spent, the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP), and tools of recourse available to FMEP when child support is not paid. Finally, they explore changing child support by consent.
