Deer Park Child Support Attorney
Information on Child Support
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.
