Child support issues are hard to handle…without a lawyer’s help. It involves complexities, calculations, and systems unfamiliar to non-lawyers.
How is the correct amount of child support calculated? What information and documents are needed to verify income amounts? How are the kids’ daycare costs, insurance premiums, and uninsured medical expenses shared (and collected)? Are payments made directly between the parties or wage withheld? Where are payments made? Who monitors payments to assure they are made? Is there mandatory language that must be included in judgments and orders? Are support orders modifiable? How frequently? How does the system handle income that fluctuates from year to year? How do courts handle bonus income? When can back support be ordered?
Questions abound. You’ll want to visit with a good family lawyer for answers.
