Each child is entitled to support if their parents are separated.
How much child support will be paid? How does custody and parenting time affect child support? How do you know if your child is emancipated? Should you have child support paid through Probation? What expenses are covered by child support? How do you share expenses that are not covered by child support, like extracurricular expenses, lessons, religious school, and unreimbursed medical expenses (not covered by insurance)? Can child support be modified? How does alimony affect child support? Is child support taxable? Is your child entitled to support even if you were never married to the other parent? What if child support isn’t being paid? These are just a few of the questions we hear and address for each of our clients.
Child support issues can be varied and complex. If you have questions regarding your specific child support issue, please call us for a consult and we will provide you with individualized legal counsel. Ideally, you may find a reasonable way to resolve child support that may not involve the courts at all. This may involve negotiation, mediation, or the Collaborative Law process.
