Rise in child support and alimony paid by women
A recent poll of divorce lawyers in America has revealed a growth in the number of women paying alimony and child support over the past three years.
The survey, by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), found that 56% of respondents reported seeing an increase in the number of mothers paying child support, while 47% also note a rise in women being responsible for alimony following divorce.
Ken Altshuler, president of the AAML, commented:
"The court system always ends up reflecting changes in our society and this is certainly the case with issues regarding who pays child support and alimony. As more women achieve success on their career paths, they are also finding themselves increasingly responsible for financial obligations during and after the divorce process."
