Reality television star back in court over child support

Many people believe that celebrities and those in the public eye have it easier when it comes to family laws issues, such as child support, child custody and divorce. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The court system treats these people the same as everybody else.

Our Virginia readers, just the same as many others throughout the country, may keep an eye on the reality television scene. Former "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans headed back to court on Monday, Dec. 2, 2013 to discuss the status of her court-ordered child support payments.

In the past, Evans was paying her month $130 per month while she cared for her son. According to reports, her mother appeared with her in court and agreed to stop having Evans pay the child support. Despite the fact that Evans earned plenty of money while starring on "Teen Mom," she has apparently run into financial difficulties as of late.

For the time being, it appears that Evans will not have to pay her mother child support for watching after her son. While this may help her for now, like any similar case, this can change at some point in the future.

It can be difficult to face a child support or child custody battle, regardless of your occupation or financial situation. In this case, Evans has had her child support order changed by the court, with the cooperation of her mom.

Child support and alimony are often contentious topics during a divorce. There are guidelines set in place by the courts to help determine the amounts, if any, of these payments. A family law attorney can help you understand those guidelines but will also work to ensure your and your children's rights are protected.
