Get Answers To Your Questions Regarding Child Support
Being a parent is a wonderful and a rewarding experience. However, with the title of parenthood come many responsibilities, including financial support. Parents have a financial responsibility to support their children. When a couple gets divorced, separated, or in the process of establishing parental rights, the Court gains jurisdiction to award, establish, or modify child support. A support order becomes permanent unless a request for modification or termination is made. There are several reasons why you may want to request a modification, or even termination of child support. Modifications and terminations can be accomplished through mutual agreements. However, when parents cannot reach an agreement, the Court would step in and resolve the support issues on its merits.
Modifying, changing, or terminating a child support order can become complicated very quickly. Don’t try to navigate the legal system on your own — contact an experienced lawyer who can help.
