Child Support Attorney 

Once the question of child custody is answered, we still must address the complicated decisions about a sustainable financing framework for the best interest of the child. This is what is known as child support.

Raising a child is one of the biggest financial commitments one can make, especially if a parent is doing it on their own. This is why child support is put in place: it guarantees that a child is provided for, and it ensures that one parent doesn't bear the sole financial burden. An experienced child support attorney can be there to make certain that both parties are represented fairly and accurately. Most importantly, however, the child support attorney will ensure that the children in question have their best interests accounted for.

Significant changes in the child support guidelines have removed us from the relatively simple, sliding scale of the non-custodial parent's income into a complicated approach that starts with a worksheet. At Wiggins Norris Coffey, our child support attorney will determine each parent's gross income and then track down and document various debits, credits and deviations to reach an equitable--and hopefully sustainable--support figure.

In theory, child support should take into account the resources available to and expended by the parents. In practice, these issues are hotly debated. What is a person's real income? How do you find it? Prove it? Who is spending what on the child? Which deviations do or should apply? After this is done, changes in circumstances thereafter will often justify a fresh look at the case in what is known as child support modification.
