Stories of unpaid child support are fairly common. Many times when a parent has failed to pay child support, it is because he or she does not have the money or actively avoids making the payments. However, NBA superstar Dennis Rodman's unpaid child support case appears to be different.
Some divorces result in one spouse paying child support to the parent with primary custody. Other divorce settlements declare that alimony payments will be paid from one spouse to his or her former spouse. Grammy-winning singer Marc Anthony pays his former wife and the mother of his two sons both child support and alimony.
It is not very often that one parent disagrees with the court's decision to enforce child support payments. Most of the time the custodial parent welcomes child support payments from the other parent. Raising a child can be very costly and the custodial parent probably wants the other parent's financial help in raising their child.
Generally, if a husband remarries, his first and second wives probably do not communicate often. The first wife may have hard feelings about her former husband remarrying and for this reason may dislike the new wife. However, two former wives of a Massachusetts man contradict this view. Their actions show that women who marry (and divorce) the same man can band together when they share a goal.
