Child Support Lawyer
In case you are wondering, “can a lawyer help me decrease my child support payments?” Our attorneys can help you with child support issues, including establishing, enforcing, and changing child support payments. A child has a fundamental right to receive child support which is commonly based on the formula that factors both parents’ incomes and the amount of time each parent spends with the child.
Courts take child support allowances seriously, and a parent’s failure to pay a child support obligation can result in harsh effects. For example, if you stop paying child support or pay less than what your court order requires, a judge could garnish your wages, take your driver’s license or professional license, or even order you to spend time in jail. So, when a court orders you to pay child support, you need to pay it unless you can show a very compelling reason not to.
Our team consists of attorneys experienced in child-related issues, such as custody, visitation, and support. Child support modifications usually require a court hearing in front of a judge. Our attorney can help you prepare for the hearing, gather important evidence, and present your case to the court.
Whether to hire a lawyer or navigate child custody solo is one of the first considerations for parents who are petitioning the court for child custody. While representing yourself may seem like a cost-saving option, it can be a risky choice, especially if your case is complicated.
