Child support case of Mets' Jose Reyes involves 'double life'

A child support case involving New York Mets' infielder Jose Reyes has taken a turn to involve an alleged "double life," according to the baseball player's former alleged paramour. The woman claims that the Met kept a secret family on the road, which was her and their child, while he had a family at home.

How to collect delinquent payments of child support

Divorced couples have a lot they need to find common ground on, including who will have custody of the children and how much child support will be paid by one spouse to the other. The child support issue all depends on if the couple has joint custody or one parent has sole custody and the other has visitation rights. It is common for people to become delinquent with paying child support.

New York's formula for determining child support obligations

When it comes to child support in the state of the New York, the awarding of it is guided by The Child Support Standards Act. It was passed on Sept. 15, 1989 to standardize the way in which these payments would be calculated. The intention of this child support formula was to ultimately provide children with a standard living not all that different from what they would experience had their parents remained together.

Modification of child support may be available to inmates

Incarcerated parents who have been ordered to pay support for their children tend to find that when they get out of prison they are deeply in debt. They are unable to keep up with their child support payments due to a lack of money coming in while they are removed from society. However, they are still expected to pay what has been ordered. It is understandable that, for inmates in New York and elsewhere, this type of situation would be quite distressing.

How can an order of filiation help in obtaining child support?

Wanting a father to take on some sort of financial responsibility for raising his child is certainly a reasonable request. However, when children are born out of wedlock, getting a child support order can be a bit of a process -- especially if paternity is being denied. There are unmarried fathers in New York, though, who may accept parentage without any issue and are ready and willing to be acting participants in the lives of their children. In such an instance, when both parents agree to parentage, and a DNA test is not insisted upon, an Order of Filiation may be filed with the court in order to open a case for custody and child support.

Failure to pay child support can affect one's credit

There are numerous non-custodial parents who struggle to meet their child support obligations. Sometimes, financially, it just seems impossible to keep up with the demand. For non-custodial parents in New York and elsewhere, it is important to know that the failure to pay child support can have extremely negative consequences -- especially to one's credit -- which can only make money matters worse.

Served divorce papers -- now what?

When papers of marriage dissolution are initially served, it is normal to feel a variety of emotions. This can be a confusing and challenging time in one's life. As difficult as it may seem, once divorce papers are received, the respondent only has a short window to answer the petition. For those dealing with this type of situation in New York or elsewhere, a family law attorney can be a great resource and guide when it comes to preparing one's response and moving forward with the process in its entirety.

Fail to pay child support, face criminal charges

New York, like many other states, has various enforcement options that may be utilized by custodial parents who are not receiving court ordered child support payments. If all else fails, a non-custodial parent may be arrested and criminally charged if he or she fails to pay child support. This is actually something that a father and business owner in another state is currently facing for his alleged failure to meet his support obligation.

What do employers have to do with paying child support?

In New York, just as in many other states, those who are ordered to make child support payments often have that money withheld from their pay. Employers play a big role in making sure that money for child support is redirected to support services, where it is then passed on to custodial parents. How does this process get started?
