Spokane residents who have not received child support payments regularly or at all understand the emotional and financial toll the process can take. The initial belief that a court order will be followed can quickly be replaced by a sinking feeling when checking empty mail boxes, month after month. A parent can feel disappointment, anger or resentment; and with good reason. The money that they receive is critical for the upbringing of their child. Without the support, a parent may find themself in financial distress.
Washington family law litigation is making more and more use of Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other social media, as we recently discussed in our Spokane Family Law Blog. People use social media to document their lives and these comprehensive records can provide a great deal of information in divorce, child custody or child support proceedings.
Almost everyone has sent one emotionally-fueled e-mail that they regret. Or, maybe it was an angry, spur-of-the-moment text message or Facebook status update. As many in Washington state know, once you send such a message, it can be hard to take it back.
