A divorce can be full of issues for North Dakota residents. From property division to child custody, many divorces can involve complex and contentious disputes. Child support can be a tricky issue because this involves a financial commitment that could potentially last for years after the divorce is finalized.
How should you approach a child support dispute? Well, for starters, the nature of the dispute should be analyzed thoroughly. Is the dispute occurring during a divorce in terms of the amount that the court will order? Is it occurring during mediation, as the parties attempt to reach an agreement on what amount of child support is fair and adequate? Or, is the dispute occurring after the divorce has been finalized, due to a change in financial circumstances?
The right approach will depend on the specific facts of any given case. In some cases, the parties will be able to successfully agree to a resolution, even when things have gotten quite heated in the case. But, in other cases, the parties will need to make their pleas to the court and do their best to persuade a judge to make a ruling in their favor.
