Financial crisis may arise due to spouse’s child support issues

Many marriages in California include spouses who were once involved in marital relationships with other people. Many of them have children from their previous unions. Many of them also have been ordered by the court to pay child support.

When a spouse is obligated to provide financial support to children in another household, it can take an extreme toll on the money situation under one’s own roof. Actress Tori Spelling is reportedly experiencing such problems at this time. She and her husband have five children together; however, he has been sued by his former wife for $100,000 in back child support payments.

Rumors and gossip typically thrive when celebrities’ family law disputes are aired in public. Spelling’s situation is no different with social network fans recently commenting on an apparent post Spelling shared that featured an image of her wearing a particular outfit for sale. Spelling reportedly supplied contact information to fans interested in purchasing other available clothing items from her personal closet.

Spelling and her husband are said to have more financial trouble than just that associated with existing child support orders. They are rumored to owe more than $700,000 in back taxes and American Express is supposedly suing Spelling over substantial credit card debt as well. This couple is surely not alone regarding financial crises that can hit families with multiple children. Anyone in California currently facing a struggle related to child support, divorce or other family law issues may seek guidance and assistance by requesting a meeting with an experienced family law attorney in the area.
