Unique Solutions For Your Unique Family

We know that each individual child support case comes with its own circumstances. All clients have their own goals in mind when they contact us. Regardless of your unique situation, our attorneys are prepared to help you in any type of child support case. Our clients include:

  • Parents with primary custody who are seeking adequate financial support to cover the costs of raising children
  • Noncustodial parents who want to ensure that their child support obligations are fair and reasonable
  • Unmarried parents seeking support from the child's other parent
  • Individuals who need to modify existing child support arrangements

What If I Need To Modify My Child Support Obligations?

Sometimes a change in your circumstances means you need to change your child support arrangements. In addition to helping clients develop fair child support agreements, our firm can assist you in obtaining a child support modification when necessary. To secure a modification, you typically must show that circumstances have changed substantially enough to warrant an increase or decrease in your support obligation.

We also assist parents who are having difficulty collecting court-ordered child support from a former partner. We will help you fight for the support your child needs and possibly seek a contempt order from the court to help you receive the back support you are due.

How Does Child Custody Affect Child Support?

Most parties to child support orders are not aware that child custody and the amount of parenting time (visitation) a parent has can affect the amount of child support paid to the other parent. If both parents have equal parenting time, most often no parent will be required to pay support. Or if your parenting time, or visitation, with your child has increased drastically, you could be eligible for a decrease in your support obligation. One of our lawyers will help you work through the support and custody guidelines so you best understand your situation.
