Licensed attorney rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell Ratings signifying preeminent legal ability and the highest ethical standards. Aggressive and effective litigator with nearly 20 years of experience representing numerous high-profile clients nationally in state and federal courts, as well as individuals on low-cost fixed fees in divorce, child support/custody and bankruptcy proceedings.
If you are a parent and you divorce, the parent the child lives with often receives money (child support) from the parent no longer living with the child. Unlike alimony, which is paid to maintain an ex-spouse's lifestyle, child support pays for the child's physical, emotional, and educational needs. A child support lawyer can help parents negotiate and calculate child support, either by agreement or in court. While national guidelines to calculate child support amounts exist, you or the judge may choose to calculate the amount based on your income and the child's needs. If you believe you are not the father of a child and want to contest a child support claim, a child support lawyer can also help you determine paternity. A child support lawyer can be useful during negotiations to help objectively determine the most appropriate amount of child support for your situation and protect against paternity fraud.
