Ways to handle child support and divorce-related issues

When a couple chooses to divorce, many family issues can create arguments between the couple. Perhaps the biggest source of contention between divorcing couples - in Philadelphia and throughout the United States - is how the children will be cared for and supported. During divorce, child support is a major concern as it determines whether the child will obtain his or her needs in the future.

The amount of support should be sufficient enough for the everyday expenses including medical, education and recreation of the child.
