There are many aspects to every divorce, but some of the most common issues that arise when a couple splits up are spousal support and child support. Typically when a couple divorces the person who is the primary earner in the family is ordered to pay some kind of alimony to his or her spouse in order to ensure that he or she has enough to live on.
If a child or children are involved, then the non-custodial parent is often ordered to make a monthly child support payment in order to ensure that the child or children’s needs are met. These are common situations that the Portland family law attorneys at Ronald Johnston Family Law are accustomed to dealing with.
Actor Columbus Short, who was recently fired from the TV series “Scandal”, has been ordered to pay child support and alimony. According to reports, a judge has ordered Mr. Short to pay $17,000 a month in spousal support to his estranged wife, as well as more than $4,500 each month in child support for the couple’s 2-year-old daughter.
