For the most part, people can understand that parents in San Bernardino, or elsewhere, may occasionally be met with financial challenges that cause them to fall behind on their bills, including court ordered child support payments. In some cases, however, even without extenuating circumstances, a parent may fall behind.

Best known as a member of the Jackson 5, singer, Jermaine Jackson is reportedly not letting the fact that he owes child support affect his lifestyle. According to reports, Jackson recently traded in his Rolls-Royce and bought a 2009 Ferrari. It was not reported how much he owes in back child support, but the mother of Jackson’s children was purportedly granted a request for garnishment of Jackson’s wages on the same day he purchased his lavish new ride.

Regardless of whether or not a child’s mother and father have an amiable relationship, in most cases, both parents have rights when it comes to their child, the least of which is the ability to see and interact with them. For any number of reasons, however, a custodial parent may decide they do not want the other parent to see the child, which often prompts non-custodial parents throughout the Inland Empire, and the U.S., to take legal action to obtain visitation with their child.

A man in prison who was seeking access to his child reportedly had his request denied by a New York judge recently. The death row inmate was pursuing paternity action in order to seek court ordered visitation with his son. He and a female prison guard reportedly conceived the child during an inappropriate relationship they participated in between March and April of 2012.

Many readers in San Bernardino, and across California, are aware that additional or significant stresses, such as financial challenges, can put pressures on a marriage that could cause it to break down. As the financial crisis that swept across the U.S. in recent years affected couples, the same stresses that were causing them to fall apart where also forcing them to stay together.

According to reports, when housing prices dropped, many couples were forced to stay together because divorcing was not financially feasible. The recovery of the U.S. housing market may have relieved some of the stresses facing married couples, but the divorce rate is once again rising. Experts reportedly contribute the rise to a couple’s ability to sell their marital home, freeing up funds from what is typically a couple’s largest asset, in order to provide each spouse with the ability to move on separately.

For both same-sex, and opposite-sex, couples in San Bernardino, settling child custody issues can be one of the most difficult aspects of finalizing the dissolution of a civil union or a divorce. Often times, both parents believe they know what is best for the child and, if those opinions do not mesh, it can make tenser an already emotionally charged situation.

A temporary child custody agreement has reportedly been reached between reality TV star and wedding planner, David Tutera, and his estranged domestic partner. The pair, who is in the process of dissolving their almost 10-year civil union, shares two children, a set of fraternal twins. Tutera is the biological father of one of the twins, who were carried by a surrogate, while his ex-partner fathered the other. According to reports, the arrangement stipulates that the twins will be separated, with each man being granted sole custody of his biological child.

In California, as well as in other states across the U.S., when a court orders a parent to make child support payments, it is expected that they comply. For any number of reasons, however, a parent may fall behind on their monthly payments. When this happens, the parent who is owed the payments may take legal action in order to get the back pay.

A woman in Illinois reportedly filed a lawsuit against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois when they declined her wage garnishment request. According to reports, the woman, claimed her ex-husband was routinely late with his child support payments, as well as often paying the wrong amount so she sent a request to Blue Cross Blue Shield. While in most cases, this type of request would go to a person’s employer, as a self-employed chiropractor, BCBS was her husband’s largest source of income. Blue Cross, however, reportedly did not feel they were subject to the Illinois state withholding law, which requires payers to withhold earnings when requested.
