Alex and Laura are outraged that Wendy received $1,000 a month in child support because Alex, before fleeing California to evade paying any support at all, went into count and managed to get the original order for support lowered to $472 a month.
Therefore, Alex reasoned, the Manchester Trust should pay less to Wendy for their daughter and send the money to him instead. The Trustees clearly did not agree evidently believing Alex, an adult male, should get an honest job and support himself.
The Manchester Trusts stepped up to the plate and ensured the Manchester children would not be left without support, sending support to Wendy, as the custodial parent since she received sole physical custody at the divorce hearing in 2007.
The Trusts, informed of Alex's bigamy in 2009, by Alex, who with his mother Lady Mary, were the only two people aware of this fact, was forced to stop these payments until the matter was litigated. This took place on July 19, 2011, at which time the Trusts again made monthly payments for the support of the two children until Alex, Jr. aged out of his minority, leaving his sister, Ashley, receiving support only from the Trusts, and her mother, naturally, though it was Alex who had been ordered to pay.
It had been a tough two years for Wendy and the kids. Wendy's job at an Orange County law firm has provided constant employment but is not lavishly compensated. It was through Wendy Alex received his medical insurance and other benefits, fraudulently as it turns out since he had committed bigamy.
Wendy hopes Alex filed a law suit so she can find him to hit him with a response which includes his bigamy.
Today, both Alex and Laura insist the actual meaning of child support is, “money to be put into a trust account for the child's future use.”
No place on the web will you find any agreement for this interpretation, all rational people realizing children must be raised and money must be spent for food, clothing, and their other many needs.
This example provides insight into the bizarre unreality in which the Duke and Duchess reside. In Las Vegas, latest address:
noun: child support; plural noun: child supports
- 1.court-ordered payments, typically made by a noncustodial divorced parent, to support one's minor child or children.
AND FROM THE WIKI -
Depending on the jurisdiction, a custodial parent may pay child support to a non-custodial parent. Typically one has the same duty to pay child support irrespective of sex, so a mother is required to pay support to a father just as a father must pay a mother. Where there is joint custody, the child is considered to have two custodial parents and no non-custodial parents, and a custodial parent with a higher income (obligor) may be required to pay the other custodial parent (obligee).
In family law, child support is often arranged as part of a divorce, marital separation, dissolution of marriage, annulment, determination of parentage or dissolution of a civil union and may supplement alimony (spousal support) arrangements.
The right to child support and the responsibilities of parents to provide such support have been internationally recognized. The 1992 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, a binding convention signed by every member nation of the United Nations and formally ratified by all but Somalia and the United States, declares that the upbringing and development of children and a standard of living adequate for the children's development is a common responsibility of both parents and a fundamental human right for children, and asserts that the primary responsibility to provide such for the children rests with their parents. Other United Nations documents and decisions related to child support enforcement include the 1956 New York Convention on the Recovery Abroad of Maintenance created under the auspices of the United Nations, which was ratified by the vast majority of UN member nations.
In addition, the right to child support, as well as specific implementation and enforcement measures, has been recognized by various other international entities, including the Council of Europe, the European Union and the Hague Conference.
Within individual countries, examples of legislation pertaining to, and establishing guidelines for, the implementation and collection of child maintenance include the 1975 Family Law Act (Australia), the Child Support Act (United Kingdom) and the Maintenance and Affiliation Act (Fiji) Child support in the United States, 45 C.F.R. 302.56 requires each state to establish and publish a Guideline that is presumptively (but rebuttably) correct, and Review the Guideline, at a minimum, every four (4) years. Child support laws and obligations are known to be recognized in a vast majority of world nations, including the majority of countries in Europe, North America and Australasia, as well as many in Africa, Asia and South America.
