Legal Process for Accessing Child Support in Jamaica Part 3

You and the Law | November 18, 2019
Child support normally refers to the ongoing periodic payment made by a parent for the financial benefit of a child following the end of a marriage or other relationship. The law stresses that the responsibility of the child should fall equally on both parents or legal guardians but there are situations where a mother may be brought to court to pay child support but her argument centers on the fact that the man is the breadwinner. Listen to You & The Law to learn more about this controversial legal issue.
