Child Support Law

Child Support

What is Child Support Law?

Child support is a monetary payment from one parent to the other after a divorce or separation to help pay for the child's needs and wellbeing. If a couple divorces and no longer lives together or shares their finances, the child may be affected if the parent with custody cannot afford to provide the same lifestyle that they had before the divorce. Thus, child support is a way to ensure the child will still be taken care of financially and both parents will still be financially responsible for the child.

Most states have predetermined formulas to determine the amount of child support a parent must pay. Typically it is the parent that does not have physical custody of the child that will be paying the support. The payments will be arranged monthly and continue until the child becomes a legal adult or enters the military.

Child Support Lawyers

Child support is a court-ordered obligation and is against to law to not comply with a child support order. If the parent ordered to pay child support fails to do so, misses payments, or does not pay enough, a family law lawyer can help you bring the matter to court. Missing payments or not paying a court-ordered child support can lead to jail time, fines, and other serious repercussions.

An experienced family law attorney can also help you if you are in a child support dispute with your ex-partner. An attorney will do their best to help you come to a resolution quickly so that your child is not affected.
