When children are involved in a divorce, the court often mandates that one of the parents is responsible for payments to the other -- typically the parent who has the majority of custody is the recipient of these payments. While the intention of the decision is good, there are times when issues arise.
If you are paying or receiving child support payments, our firm can help. Sometimes a judge may assign a payment amount that is untenable. In those instances, our team can help you to file an action to seek to lower the payments.
In some cases, the parent responsible for the payments may fall behind or decide to cease making the monthly payments. If this is the case, our child support lawyers can work with you to seek recompense and to collect the money owed to you.
On the other hand, the circumstances for the parent providing support may change. If this is the case, perhaps due to a change in financial situations, you have options. You, with your attorney’s assistance, can petition the court to reduce the payment amounts. If you are saddled with payments that are too great based on your financial situation or if the circumstances of your ex have changed, let our child support attorneys work on your behalf to help you get your payments set to a level that you can reasonably be expected to make.
Whatever your child support issue may be, don’t wait to contact us any longer. You may be making payments that are unsustainable or you may not be receiving what you should. Call McCarter | East PLLC today to get the help you need.
