Determine Appropriate Child Support Amounts And Fight For Your Rights
Child support issues are often highly contentious, but they are among the most important issues that parents must resolve. At Lehnhardt Price Family Law, we help clients in Union County establish appropriate child support payment amounts for minor children as well as handle all types of modification requests for this type of support. If your spouse has failed to make child support payments as ordered by the court, we can also help file motions for contempt to demand the payments you are owed.
North Carolina family law provides a specific formula for determining child support. Factors commonly include:
- The custodial and noncustodial parents’ incomes
- The number of children the parents have together
- The number of children for whom the noncustodial parent is already paying child support
- The children’s special educational or medical needs, if any
Our team has the experience to craft a convincing argument to the courts advocating for your child support position. We can also help with negotiations during mediation to ensure a fair and just child support amount. We can give you experienced representation whether you are seeking child support or being asked to pay it. Your children’s best interests are the most important thing for us.
If your co-parent has stopped paying child support or if you are accused of unpaid child support, our lawyers will give your case close attention. We will seek a fair out-of-court solution, but will go to court if a just settlement is not possible. We will help you resolve the matter and put the dispute behind you.
