Court-ordered child support is one of the more commonly disputed aspects of divorce settlements. Not only can it be difficult for parents to initially agree to a child support plan, but it can also be troublesome to later modify these agreements due to changes in the financial stability of either parent. Additionally, another frequent issue regarding child support is the failure of the paying parent to make child support payments on time, which can be financially devastating for the custodial parent and the child. In situations such as these, it is often the best course of action to seek out skilled legal representation in order to ensure that the proper steps are taken to protect you and your family.
Types of Child Support Cases
Maintaining a financially viable relationship between a non-custodial parent and custodial parent is a challenging undertaking, and legal action is sometimes necessary to make sure that child support agreements are balanced and executed faithfully. Our attorneys have experience assisting client in the following areas, among others:
- Modifications to support agreements

The court will always seek to act in the best interests of the child, but the needs and financial situation of the parents will also be considered in any decision. Support agreements are inflexible documents but fortunately can be modified to more accurately reflect the family’s needs.
