Winter Park Child Support Attorney
Florida Divorce Lawyer Assisting Families with Child Support
Child support is a tricky subject; on one hand, both parents want the absolute best for their children. On the other hand, the paying parent may not be able to afford what the other parent is asking, or what the court has already decided. An attorney can help you accomplish your child support goals, whether they are to increase or reduce a child support order that was already created, or to encourage the court to reach a fair decision the first time around during your divorce. The Winter Park child support attorneys of The Troum Law Firm, P.A. are here to help you through this complicated, and often highly emotional, process.
Fighting on Behalf of Custodial Parents to Maximize Child Support
Custodial parents are tasked with endless responsibilities. They feed, cloth, play with, and supervise their child day in and day out, usually while having to juggle a job, social life, and other commitments on top of it all. It is only fair that the child’s other parent steps in to help with the finances of bringing up a child, which costs an average of $172,000 and $319,000 from birth to the age of 17, depending on household income, according to The Street. Non-custodial parents have an obligation to provide the highest level of child support that they can afford—money that will go to the child’s education, healthcare expenses, food, childcare, clothing, shelter, toys, and more. We fight on behalf of custodial parents to maximize child support, giving them and their children the best chance at getting ahead in life.
Providing Legal Counsel for Non-Custodial Parents in Child Support Disputes
As a non-custodial parent, you most likely have a duty to pay child support until your child is 18, or in some cases longer if they are attending college. Your support order depends on your income, the finances of the child’s other parent, the needs of the child, and much more. We understand that excessively high child support payments may not be feasible for you, and will advocate on your behalf to ensure that whatever you do end up paying is a reasonable amount that you can afford.
Petition for Child Support Modification
Just because a child support order was created to meet everyone’s needs and capabilities five years ago does not mean that the order is relevant today. Things change. Parents get demoted or lose jobs —after all, there are currently 2.5 million Americans who have been out of a job for a year or more, according to Cheat Sheet. Other parents get promotions or large inheritances. Children get sick, no longer need childcare, or head to college. Child support can be modified with the help of an attorney.
