How We Can Help You
Child support payments can be created in two ways:
- Through an agreement outside of court
- By a court-decided order
Everyone has the chance to go through mediation, but if parents can’t agree on child support, the court will step in and make the decision for the parents. The goal is to ensure that the order is in the best interests of the child.
When the court orders payment of support, the noncustodial parent will need to pay for support until your child turns 18, unless a different time is set. This may be the case for children with special needs.
Child support orders basically determine the manner that you and your spouse will continue to raise your children. This agreement will be a massive part of your lives. We will help ensure that payment is fair and will benefit your child in the long run.
Do you need help with enforcing or modifying child support agreements?
Child Support Enforcement
Once a child support order is placed in effect, the noncustodial parent is obliged by law to pay the amount mandated by the court for child support. Failure to pay could put a parent in contempt of court, and the courts will need to take legal action as they see fit. This could mean garnishing wages and salaries or even issuing a warrant of arrest.
Child Support Modification
If you cannot afford to pay for support due to changes in your financial situation, it is important to speak to you a lawyer to help you. The court will look at the proof of such hardship and once convinced will order a modification of support.
