Has your ex-spouse stopped paying child support? Do you need help ensuring that they pay the proper amount?
Given the cost of raising and supporting a child, it is important to establish the proper amount of child support from your ex-partner. While no amount of money can replace a parental figure, monetary backing to raise and support a child’s upbringing is vital. Likewise, a physical presence of a parent is important, but the monetary contribution to a child’s upbringing is a necessity. Having a child support lawyer on your side will streamline the process of establishing or enforcing a child support order, should your ex-partner decide to cease paying their share of child support.
Having a support order is not always a necessity, but it is highly recommended especially if you and your ex-partner are not on the best of terms. A child support lawyer will be your guide to walk you through the complex process of filing the appropriate legal documents to establish a child support order. If an instance arises where your ex-partner needs to be served with papers, your child support lawyer will know the proper process to legally serve him or her with a notice. When seeking to establish a child support order, specific financial information from you and your ex-partner is required. Calculating a specific amount of child support is often a complicated task, requiring a wealth of personal financial information as well as specialized software programs that follow a specified formula. Your lawyer will also help you through the process to eliminate any guesswork during this important phase of the process.
After you and your child support lawyer have a child support order established, your ex-partner is legally obligated to pay a predetermined amount set by the courts. However, the war is not always necessarily over. Sometimes the next battle is having this order enforced. In some cases, your ex-partner may not pay the court ordered amount. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence, and an instance where you want to have your child support lawyer work on your behalf. Without a lawyer’s assistance, you may be left feeling as if you just went this tedious process of having a child support order established only to have your ex-partner neglect the court-ordered payments. However, with your child support lawyer supporting your claim, you are not helpless to the whims of your ex-partner.
