Missouri parents may learn from child support case

Divorce can be messy for Missouri residents especially when children are involved. Most cases involve one parent paying child support to the other. A recent story in which a father was ordered to pay child support before finding out his ex-wife had hidden a large amount of money during their divorce proceedings has made headlines nationwide.

The father had been ordered to pay $2,465 to his ex-wife in child support from what was described as a modest income. The man is a musician who also started a natural soda brand before finding out further details about his wife's hidings. The man now alleges that the woman told him she was flying out-of-state to visit her brother when in fact she went to visit her first husband and meet with a friend of his that had connections with Twitter founders.

The company was private at the time and the woman filed for a divorce approximately six months after meeting with the founders. It has since been discovered that the woman hid between 10 and 50 million dollars from her ex-husband. He is now stating that since the investment was made during their marriage that the financial gain was part of their marital money. This will also have an impact on the amount of child support the man was ordered to pay.

Any Missouri resident that is going through child support proceedings or has already received an ordered amount may want to look into their rights under the applicable state laws. Since each situation is handled on a case by case basis, it can be important for all of the facts to be known. While most individuals are liable for a certain amount of child support, it can be important to make sure all proper information has been given and the amount ordered is based on the appropriate information.
