Social Security and child support in Arizona

When a non-custodial parent is receiving Social Security benefits and is failing to pay required child support, the custodial parent may be able to garnish a portion of those benefits through a subsequent court order. The ability to garnish Social Security benefits will depend on the kind of benefits the nonpaying parent receives, however, as Supplemental Security Insurance cannot be garnished.

Statistics regarding illnesses and divorce

According to researchers at two Midwestern universities, couples are more likely to get divorced when the wife is suffering from a serious illness, while this result is not true in cases where the husband is seriously ill. Researchers could only speculate on why this is the case, but the study shows that couples in Arizona should take good care of their health not only for their personal well-being, but also the sake of their marriages.

Census sheds lights on late child support payments

The most recent data available from the Census Bureau shows how many parents did not receive the child they were owed in 2011. The data indicated that unpaid child support amounted to $14.3 billion in 2011, and the census collected information about the age, race and gender of parents who were supposed to be receiving child support. It appears that women in Arizona and around the country are less likely to pay their child support obligations than men.

Research shows doctors less likely to divorce

Arizona doctors may be interested to learn that a report released on Feb. 19 revealed that doctors were less likely to get a divorce than other medical or health care professionals. These findings were particularly interesting because it has often been thought that, due to the long hours and stress, divorce rates among doctors were high.
