How to determine paternity in Virginia

The structure and definition of a traditional family in Virginia and across the country has changed over the last century. Most people thought of a family as being composed of a a married couple of opposite genders and their children. However, today there is a chance that two parents will not be married, often leaving couples wondering how to determine paternity.

New program could help a parent enforce a child support order

A proposed federal fund aims to support states in mandated record-keeping and enforcement. Since 1995, states are required to develop effective child support collection and enforcement programs by law. These programs help parents to enforce a child support order when the other parents fail to make payments. The new federal program could potentially provide upgrades to the existing system in Virginia. 

Business income can also provide for a child's basic needs

Some individuals in a marriage may have the entrepreneurial gene and, therefore, one or both partners may involve themselves in creating a family business. During a divorce and child custody battle, however, determining the value of that business can be a challenge, but accurate accounting will ensure that a support order will be made that will provide for a child's basic needs. At the time of the divorce, some Virginia families may find they need help with this financial task. 

Taking the mystery out of the child support order

Don't take common knowledge for granted when it comes to the children. A person who is approaching the issue of co-parenting after a separation or divorce may be wondering about the details of support payments. A Virginia court will decide the child support order, but it is up to the individual to understand exactly what child support is, who is responsible for paying, and how regular payments are important.
