Hemera/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Mother’s Day mean flowers and cards, but for an increasing number of moms, it’s also a reminder that they have to write child support checks.

In a new survey, 56 percent of the nation’s top divorce attorneys say they have seen an increase in the number of mothers paying child support during the past three years.  Forty-seven percent of the attorneys say they have also noted an increase in the number of women who are paying alimony.

Fifty-three percent of the attorneys surveyed said they noted no change.

The survey was conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
