As you separate from your spouse, the well-being of your children is a top priority. One of the major components in this is child support. At Brasier Law we will represent your interests to see that a fair and equitable child support amount is reached to ensure that your children are adequately provided for.
Knowledgable Child Support Attorney
While child support is often standardized to a set formula, there are circumstances that are considered in the process of setting a monthly payment amount. Factors such as income of both parents, custody and parenting time play vital roles in this decision.
Some parents have incomes that cannot be clearly conveyed in typical reporting methods. This would include individuals relying on commission, as well as small business owners or those receiving income from certain investments. There can be significant issues in calculating income to present to the court. We will put together the numbers needed to fairly demonstrate your income, achieving a fair and equitable child support payment.
Child Custody Attorney
Otherwise, child support is largely based on child custody and parenting time considerations. The more time you have with the children, the less you are required in child support, based on nights spent with the kids. We will advocate on your behalf to get a fair amount of time with your children, whether through custody or a parenting time schedule.
We are also prepared to represent your interests in the calculations that surround how your time with the children will translate in child support.
