The best way to make sure your child’s expenses are taken care of and that your money is not misappropriated is to set up a court-ordered child support arrangement. This arrangement would enable you to make payments directly to the court, which would then be distributed to your wife and her family for the purpose of your child’s expenses. You can also negotiate for a say in how the money is being utilized, so that you have a degree of control over where it is being spent. A divorce lawyer can help you to make sure that your child’s best interests are protected and that your financial contributions are properly accounted for. The lawyers at Fairfax VA Divorce are experienced in all aspects of family law, including divorce, separation, child custody and support, alimony, and more.
