Child Support

Child support is one of the most hotly contested issues during a divorce.  In most cases, both parents want to do what is right by their child, but it can be difficult when every discussion turns into a battle.  It is possible to negotiate an arrangement that ensures your child has what he or she needs without taking advantage of the situation for either parent.  Mediation can also help you find common ground when it comes to child support.

The key to settling child support issues is to examine all aspects of the situation.  It is possible for divorcing parents to come to terms without the process turning into an all-out battle.  An experienced attorney can help divorcing couples understand the state guidelines regarding child support and help them settle this issue.

When child support issues must be settled in a courtroom, it is important to have an experienced attorney by your side.  Courts consider all relevant factors when determining child support, including the financial resources and needs of both parents, and the child (ren).  You deserve to be treated fairly and your child deserves to have all the necessary provisions needed to live a happy, healthy life, even if he or she must do so with parents who are not married.
