KEEP THE FOCUS ON YOUR CHILD IN CHILD SUPPORT CASES
As a parent, you know that your child’s upbringing isn’t going to be cheap. The expense of raising a child doesn’t stop just because you and the child’s other parent aren’t in a relationship any longer. In this case, child support plays a crucial role in making sure that your child has the financial support necessary to get at least life’s necessities.
We understand that child support matters are often full of strife. The paying parent might not think that the recipient parent should get the amount of child support the law says that parent should get. The recipient parent might think the child support order isn’t providing enough support.
In these cases, it is imperative to pull the focus back to where it should be — on the child. As parents, you have to do what you can to make sure your child has what he or she needs. This might mean you have to sacrifice and that you have to think about your child before yourself. While this isn’t always pleasant, it is what a parent should do.
There are sometimes issues that come up in child support cases that change the course of the case. Child support modifications can help to deal with significant changes that impact the support amount. A job loss, demotion, loss of income, promotion, raise or job change can all lead to a modification in the child support amount.
We can help you with all aspects of child support. It is important that you start learning your options as soon as you know you have something to address. Whether this is the initial filing for child support or a modification petition, we are here to help.
