Don't neglect child support benefits for your kids

You have a good job with an upstanding company and a bright employment future ahead of you. Although you're divorcing and will have primary custody of the kids, you're thinking that you might not need to seek child support from your spouse.

Don't fall into this trap. Those funds are for your children, and they should receive them. If you don't need them now to pay your bills, save them for the kids' college educations. Even if they don't plan on pursuing their educations beyond high school, that will make a nice little nest egg for them to purchase a car -- or even help towards a down payment for their first home.

Even if the kids eventually use the money to fund a European vacation after they graduate from high school, it's money they are owed and should receive.

Another thing to consider is that you have no way of knowing that your health will remain robust and your employment prospects strong. All sorts of things could befall you before your children reach adulthood. You need to be prepared to suppport your children no matter what happens to you.

We can help you seek child support from your soon-to-be ex-spouse (or your former spouse if you've already divorced). Don't deny your kids and your kids these funds out of some sense of pride for making it without your ex's contributions. That money can enhance the quality of your children's lives.

Child support benefits could even allow you to work fewer hours and be able to spend more quality time with the kids. Call us today to learn more about seeking child support for your children.
