A Family Law Attorney Fighting For Your Child Support
Single and divorced parents sometimes worry about how to provide financially for their children.

Aggressive and experienced, we will do our best to negotiate or litigate the best financial arrangement for you and your children.
Factors Determining Child Support Amount
The amount of child support is determined by several factors. Each parent’s income is taken into consideration. Physical custody remains a big part of it, too, as well as the number of overnight stays the child has with each parent. Health care expenses also must be considered.
Our team can help you answer questions such as “How will I receive child support payments?” and “When will I receive it?” Through our effective negotiating skills, we will ensure that you receive timely payments. We can pursue monthly payments. However, more ideal payments would be through wage garnishment. Here’s how it works: Garnishment orders are forwarded to the other parent’s employer, which withholds the amount of child support payments and then sends it directly to the other parent.
We can help in other areas, too. When life situations and the child’s needs change, we aggressively pursue modifications to the child support agreement. And when a parent falls behind in paying child support, we will aggressively take action.
