Dina Manzo separation from husband calls to mind supervised parenting

Dina Manzo is the former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star who recently announced her separation from her husband whom she was married to for 7 years, Tommy Manzo. The reality star was separated from Tommy since October 2012. Dina was previously married to George Hadjiapostoli. The former couple had a daughter together named Lexi who is now 17 years old. Dina Manzo had previously been on the television channel VH1 documenting her wedding on the show “My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding” in 2005.

Supervised parenting and child support are related in terms of children involved in a divorce. There are many wealthy couples who must deal with the concept of child support. The court will calculate the “basic child support obligation,” and the non-custodial parent’s pro rata share of the obligation. Unless the court finds that the non-custodial parent’s pro rata share of the “basic child support obligation” is unjust or inappropriate, after considering enumerated factors, it must order the non-custodial parent to pay his or her pro rata share of the obligation. The support obligation is calculated by “combined parental income” which is multiplied by the appropriate “child support percentage” as listed by statute, based on the number of children the couple has together. It is important to note that the Domestic Relations Law also states that a parent’s liability for the support of his or her children is limited to the age of 21. For more information, see this New Jersey Child Support Caluclator.

Is supervised parenting time good for you?

In finding fair and reasonable solutions in a divorce, one of the biggest issues to address is child custody and child welfare. Flexibility in negotiations should always be considered when children are involved, as priority to what is in their best interests should take precedence.
