What Factors Should We Take Into Consideration To Determine Support Awards?
Filing for child support can be a lengthy and complicated process. Having a knowledgeable attorney to guide you in the right direction is crucial. Our goal is to reach an agreement outside of court; however, we will fight for your rights no matter where your case takes us. Child support is determined by looking at a number of factors, including:
- Where the child primarily lives
- The amount each parent makes
- The cost of living of the child
- Any other necessary expenses, such as health care, health insurance or day care
If a parent fails to pay the agreed-upon amount, they can face serious consequences. It’s important to note that child support modifications can be made should either party’s situation change. For example, maybe one parent lost their job or, on the other hand, got a significant raise. Maybe the child no longer requires the same amount of support. We can help you find answers to all of these situations. The best interest of you and your child is our top priority.
