Child Support

Paying too much? Not getting enough? Time to talk to a child support lawyer.

As experienced child support lawyers,
we'll run the numbers and get you the answers you need.

The basic child support obligation under the law is not overly complicated, but if you’ve got an argument to make or circumstances have changed and you need modifications or enforcement – you are best served with an attorney in your corner, running that trial for you.
Child support is an obligation shared by both parents. A common misconception is that it is a straight percentage of your income – but that is inaccurate. The statutory formula is based on a percentage of BOTH parents’ incomes (AGI actually), and then a pro-rata share is assigned each parent in proportion to their share of income contributing to that total figure.

Our Process

1. Gather Information

We’ll need the names of the parties and kids, dates of birth, prior court orders, petitions filed, and what has been going on before then and presently that has landed you in court.

2. Run Numbers, Develop Strategy

What do we think the right number is? What arguments or issues are presenting themselves?

3. Negotiate & File

Don’t forget about this one! You and your ex may not be on great terms but we can handle this for you and an amenable agreement is usually best for all parties involved.

4. Trial & Beyond

No agreement? No problem – let’s put our best foot forward with our trial plan.

Trials & Tribulations

Our excellence in court and trials makes us the best choice for a child support lawyer. A decade in court, thousands of arguments appearances, and hundreds of trials has honed our legal skills – and you don’t have to employ those trial skills for them to be a sharp and valuable tool to have on hand.

Legal Protection

As experienced child support lawyers, we know you have questions. We have the answers you need.

Gather Information

We need you to bring in all the documents you have so we can get a grasp on the situation, the parties involved, the names of the kids, dates of birth, prior court orders, petitions filed, and what has been going on before then and presently that has landed you in court.

Prior court orders

Any petitions filed

Birth certificates

Any other court orders pertaining to this child (or children)

Any other court order regarding any other children

Run Numbers, Develop Strategy

What do we think the right number is? What arguments or issues are presenting themselves? If you think the numbers should be higher or lower – why? Let’s review the statutes and case law to find and assess viable arguments. We’ll also draft any petitions and motions to be filed at this time.

Negotiate & File

You and your ex may not be on great terms but we can handle this for you and an amenable agreement is usually best for all parties involved. We can negotiate before filing and/or afterwards (depending on if we need to modify an existing court order) – but then we’ll need to review and sign our drafted papers, then file and serve the other party. We’ll also develop a fallback strategy and assemble evidence to present out case.

Trial & Beyond

If there’s no agreement, we’ll proceed to trial, following our trial. Don’t forget if we lose that child support rulings have an extra level of review (a judicial objection before a true appeal).
