- Q. Married, husband hasn't met son & lives in another state. Can I establish custody before getting a divorce?
- A: Alimony is based on the recipient proving that he/she has the need and that the obligor has the ability to pay. Factors also include length of marriage and marriage contribution. More facts are necessary to determine whether you are eligible for alimony. As for visitation and child support, it is important to note that time sharing cannot be used as leverage to receive child support - therefore, a parent should not be denied timeshare because he/she is not paying child support. With that said, it is not in a child's best interest for a parent to intentionally fail to pay child support. There are procedures in place to compel child support payments.
