Huntington Child Support Lawyer
Regardless of whether the parents are married or unmarried, in cases involving divorce, child custody battles, paternity settlements, or other familial issues involving children, the subject of child support often arises. It must be resolved either through mutual agreement between the parents or adjudication in court. In such critical circumstances, professional guidance with our Huntington child support lawyer through this intricate process is of utmost importance.
How a Huntington Child Support Lawyer Can Help
Calculating child support may seem simple at first glance, but the process can quickly become intricate and overwhelming. Parents are required to complete a Statement of Net Worth, which details their income, expenses, assets, property, and debts. This can prove challenging, particularly when a parent is self-employed, unemployed, or underemployed.
Our knowledgeable child support lawyer can ensure that both you and your co-parent are accurately reporting all income and expenses, property, and debts. If one parent attempts to lower their income or hide assets to evade higher child support payments, it is ultimately the child who suffers. Our team can provide expert assistance, involving forensic accountants or other specialists as needed, to guarantee child support is computed correctly by both parents.
Remember, the amount calculated through the guidelines is generally considered to be accurate, but parents can agree on a different amount. If the judge is convinced that the agreed amount serves the best interests of the children, the court can endorse the decided amount. We stand ready to assist parents in negotiating an agreement that caters to the unique needs of your family.
Additionally, one parent may argue that the guidelines’ amount is unjust or unsuitable and request the court to approve a different amount, even against the other parent’s objections. In such contested hearings, you need the backing of an experienced litigator capable of gathering factual evidence and legal arguments to support your position in court.
