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.
