For those of us with kids (me included) they bring so much joy into our lives, when they are not being jerks. But we don’t hold that against them and we try our best to provide for them financially in every way.

Child support payments are a necessary topic that has to be addressed. To have a better understanding of this topic so you can better prepare and participate in your mediation here are some important things to note about child support orders.
