Child Support

 

Issues involving child support may seem straightforward, but the process involves many intricacies so it is important to have an attorney you can trust by your side.

For example, in Ohio, child support is determined based on a specific numeric formula. This requires the consideration of multiple factors, such as income, childcare expenses, and medical insurance coverage, among others. But certain details, such as self-employment or being terminated from current employment, can have a detrimental – and sometimes unfair – impact on child support.

For single parents, we understand the financial difficulties involved in raising children alone. We will represent the interests of you and your children by ensuring the court’s child support order is fair and will provide adequate financial support for your children. We will explain your rights and options to ensure the best outcome in a sensitive situation.

For those ordered to pay, we understand a monthly child support obligation can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. We will represent your interests when support is determined, and educate you about when and how you can seek a modification of an existing order. Falling behind on child support payments can have serious consequences, ranging from automatic deductions from your paychecks to being held in contempt of court or facing felony criminal charges. We can help.

Parents going through a divorce or dissolution also must take child support obligations into consideration. These determinations can be even more complicated, as divorce proceedings often involve orders of spousal support – whether temporary or for a set period of time – and parental rights can be allocated in different ways, each with its own implications on child support.
