Report: Growing financial upside for many women post-divorce

In years past, research strongly indicated that women who divorced usually suffered financial crisis, while the man's income increased. Times are changing. In a recent report released by Pew Research, a Washington, D.C., organization that has a pulse on changing social issues, divorced women are not suffering the financial setbacks or stigma with which they were once branded.

Feds augment child support collection efforts with deadbeat website

The term "deadbeat parents" is well understood by most providers in Florida and other states who fulfill their family responsibilities by caring adequately for their children. There are certainly situations in which loving and well-intentioned parents simply run into difficulties providing agreed-upon child support payments for their children -- for example, illness or a lost job.

Not only do divorcing couples in Florida and nationally sometimes use their children as pawns in their conflict and often battle over custody and visitation rights, but the children themselves can also suffer compounded emotional grief from divorces that turn ugly.

Rise, fall of Miami Heat star reflected in child support arrears

With a pending bankruptcy case, a federal judge must now rule on whether the delinquent child support case against former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker can proceed. A circuit judge recently said he could not take action on the back child support and delinquent school tuition for Walker's 13-year-old daughter because of the pending bankruptcy case, subsequently leaving the decision in the hands of the federal court.
