Child Support Lawyer

Compassionate, Skilled Family Law Attorneys in Charleston

When both parents do not contribute to the child’s upbringing equally, the court may request child support from one parent in order to provide the child with the financial support he or she needs. In New Jersey, both parents are expected to take responsibility for their children, which means they must both pay for any necessities the child requires. If you wish to request child support from your ex, or want to modify the child support payments you currently pay, our firm can help you.

Not all family law matters are easy, especially when children are involved. When parents go their separate ways, it can be very difficult to find a parenting solution that works for both parties, which may make child support difficult to negotiate. If you are dealing with a child support issue, our experienced family law attorneys can provide you with the legal representation you need. With more than 20 years of experience at our backs, you can rest easy knowing your legal team is capable, compassionate, and prepared.

Why Hire a Child Support Attorney?

Child support is a court-ordered payment intended to help contribute to the child’s upbringing. Usually, the parent who the child lives with will receive the child support payments on the child’s behalf. These payments are intended to help support the child’s wellbeing and may contribute to the child’s education, medical expenses, living expenses, food, clothing, toys, and other necessities.

The amount of child support granted varies greatly depending on the financial situation and parental responsibilities of each parent, and the child’s financial need. In order to secure child support for your child, the parentage of the paying party must be established. In other words, if you are asking the father to make payments, paternity must be confirmed and parental rights must be established by the court before child support can be ordered.
