How much is too much for our children? It is certain when a kid has too much sugar, but one can never have too much love and support. Most parents would say children deserve the best that they can provide, and the law often mandates this in the case that parents get divorced.
Parents always want what is best for their children. This can be a challenging obligation even at the best of times when parents can agree on the best path forward, but it becomes even more complicated when parents are feuding or separating. Even wealthy parents have problems serving their children's best interests.
There are very few problems related to having a lot of money. It is rare that someone thinks he or she has too much capital on hand, but large bank accounts and other assets can prove a complication if a pair of former spouses is fighting over how to support their children.
Divorce has become much more common in the last few decades, and divorce courts are more accustomed to dealing with the consequences of the ends of marriages. No one feels the effect of parents divorcing more than the children of the couple, and many laws govern how parents are expected to care for them.
A rich parent doesn't always make for a happy childhood. Sometimes, a mother's or father's wealth or earning potential can cause complications in a divorce. Since the split of parents is already a traumatizing experience, any dispute over child support or custody can be especially painful.
Child support payments are supposed to give the child clothes, food and other necessities. However, some parents believe that is all they should provide. That is not the case.
Good fortune child support is often connected to people with an incredibly high wage, such as a professional athlete or someone who owns his or her own corporation. These people are far past thinking about salaries and hourly wages. They're earning hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars every year.
Professional athletes at the height of their craft often pull in more money annually than many people will make in their lives. This could mean millions of dollars per year for NFL players, NBA players and MLB players.
The regular baseball season is still months off, but spring training is due to start later this month in Florida and other southern tier states. Not all the action is going to be on the field. For one Detroit Tigers player, being in Florida includes an ongoing legal dispute over child support. At the heart of the matter is application of Florida's "good fortune" child support provision.
