Some parents who have applied for child support from the other parent change their minds and no longer wish to receive it. In such cases in Tennessee, family law rules apply. Although a court may have mandated those payments in the child's best interests, a parent may feel otherwise. But having payments stopped cold turkey may not be as easy as all that.
The reasons people get divorced are many, but its stands to reason that some of the problems may stem from differing opinions on different issues. When a Tennessee couple has kids, it may be that they have different parenting styles, which also could have been a bone of contention and may continue to be, even though they are divorced. There are tools under the family law umbrella that can help parents come together to co-parent in a way that serves the best interests of their children.
When you decided to divorce, you determined that you were not going to let it ruin your children's lives. You understood that there would likely be challenges, but you figured that with lots of love and support to go around, you'd all fare as well as possible as you helped each other move on toward a happy, new lifestyle.
There is no doubt that some of the most contentious aspects of divorce revolve around children. Between custody and support matters, there is a lot for divorcing spouses to argue about.
