    Urban Therapy with Sun #96 Deadbeat Moms? Mom Paying Child Support and Alimony?

    in Health

    It's true and it happens a lot more than people recognize but there are thousands of women in this country that do not have custody of their children and who are ordered to pay child support and sometimes alimony. It's not just men who pay child support and interestingly enough it's not just men who are classified as deadbeat dads. There are plenty of deadbeat moms out there and in terms of percentages of those who pay child support, there are more deadbeat moms than dads. Many women run behind in child support by thousands of dollars and make excuses for it similar to the way we are used to hearing about men doing. Many women serve jail sentences for non payment and many try to escape justice for ducking child support payments as well. Many of these stories are swept under the rug or are under reported.

    This show is not designed to demonize women for acting the same way as some men are known to do. There is no doubt that the most important thing is for children to be placed in the care of of the most capable, responsible, loving situation whether it's the mom or the dad. This show will be an information show to shed light on a very real situation that affects the lives of our children and families. We need to recognize the family must go on but the way that the family is financed is not always one way or one sided.

    Things that will be covered on this show:

    Circumstances that grant custody with fathers instead of mothers.

    How the courts view mothers that relinquish custody to fathers.

    Circumstances that grant alimony to husbands instead of wives.

    The emergence of full time single father households.

    How women paying child support deal with custody as well as child support payments.

    Relationships and Finances........That other "F" Word

    in Romance

    There’s nothing like a man’s authentic love for his woman. But is love enough to pay the bills?! Similar to love & sex, finances play a major part in relationships. Whether you’re in the romance stage or the commitment stage of a relationship, money has probably came up at some point in time. Finances are one of the top things that break up relationships and marriages. Because financial issues can stem way before you say “I Do”, should a man be financially stable before considering a relationship? How important do you think money is in a relationship? If a man is considered broke, can his relationship survive? Many men may claim that it’ll be nice if their woman treated them on dates. You know, pick up the tab sometimes. Or whomever asks, should be the one to pay. Should a woman hold her man down, if so, for how long? Are the rules different if you’re just dating vs if you’re married? Would you breakup with your spouse if they fell on financial trouble? Ultimately, does love prevail in the end? So many endless questions! Find out what After Hourz has to say about money and relationships! We want to hear from you! Listen! Call in! Share!

    Attorney Jeffery Leving Tells How To Be A Good Divorced Dad

    in Women

    After a divorce, many fathers become absent in the lives of their children. There are many reasons why, and Attorney Jeffery Leving explains it in his book "How to Be a Good Divorced Dad." The important thing for parents to remember is that the well being of the children are more important than anything. Yet, the anger over a marital breakup often causes adults to use children as weapons in the war of vengeance. There are ways men and women can work together to insure that children receive the benefits of a mother and a father even if the two are no longer together. Attorney Leving, also author of "Father's Rights" , explains how men can overcome common obstacles and remain active in the lives of their children
