Deer Park Child Support Attorney

Information on Child Support

After a divorce, one of the main concerns is how to make ends meet. Whereas prior to the divorce, two incomes were combined to provide for one household, the same amount of money must now support two households. Caring for the needs and expenses of the children involved is of utmost importance. Just because a child lives primarily with one parent does not mean the other parent is not responsible for contributing to the cost of raising his or her child. In fact, quite the opposite is true. When one parent takes primary care of the child, they may require more money from the other parent just to make ends meet. When going through a divorce involving children, and determining the fair amount of child support, you need the help of an experienced Deer Park divorce attorney. We can help you fight for child support that is fair so that your child is provided for, despite the divorce.

Child support and child custody go hand in hand. If both parents have equal joint custody, and share the cost of the child equally, minimal or no child support may be required. However, if one parent has sole custody and is responsible for the primary cost and care of the child, they may require a significant amount of support from the other parent. However, the amount of income of each parent will be taken into consideration when determining the amount of support they must pay. Whether going through mediation, or litigating in divorce court, your attorney can pursue a fair amount of support for your child, or help to ensure that you are not being forced to pay more than you can afford.
