Child support issues may arise in different circumstances. In many family law cases, child support decisions must be made when parents decide to dissolve their marriage. Deciding how much child support should be paid to support the child may be difficult, and parents may choose three main ways to decide on a payment plan. Recently, a famous music artist has settled his child supportcase.
According to reports, DNA results have confirmed that Future, a rapper from Atlanta, has child. The child's mother is from Atlanta and gave birth in 2001. Reports say that the rap star has agreed to monthly child support payments of more than $1,500.
Determining child support payments may be challenging. Generally, there are three ways to determine how much should be paid: through an agreement of the parents, through a resolution using a method of an alternative dispute resolution or through a court order. In circumstances in which parents are able to communicate and work with one another, the separated couple may decide on a child support agreement themselves through an informal negotiation process.
Parents may also choose to involve their attorneys during this process and ideally end the negotiations with a written agreement. Parents might decide to use an alternative dispute resolution option, such as mediation or collaborative law, which are an out of court processes. Using an alternative dispute resolution process may allow parents to still have some self-determination in deciding child support. If parents are unable to come to an agreement, parents may have a judge determine child support payments according to Georgia's child support guidelines.
It is important to remember that in every child support case, there is a child. It is in the best interests of the child and the parties involved for the parents to come to a cordial agreement.
