Child support is a very important part of a divorce because it can have such a dramatic effect on the lives of the children of divorcing parents, affecting them for years to come. At Grazi & Gianino, our child support lawyer (family law lawyer) provides compassionate yet tenacious representation and guidance, protecting your rights and those of your children in the pursuit of a positive and equitable resolution.
Child support is an obligation that provides financial support for a child or children following a divorce. If a divorcing couple has children, one of the most important aspects to be determined is child support, in conjunction with time-sharing issues. Child support payments are designed to ensure that children are provided for financially, despite the lifestyle changes that may occur as a result of the divorce.
A court determines the amount of child support that is required to be paid by the non-custodial parent. This amount is calculated based on the Florida Child Support Guidelines and is influenced by factors such as the incomes of each parent and the Time-Sharing Plan. Our child support attorney can provide you with the information you need to determine if your child support payments are being fairly calculated by the court. If there appears to be a deviation from the child support guidelines by the court, or there are questions as to the validity of actual income figures being used, we work hard to ensure that child support payments are calculated accurately and based upon proper data.
Our family law lawyer can also represent you if modifications to child support agreements are necessary. A modification to child support payments can be requested if there are significant changes in circumstances for one or both parents or the financial needs of the children, or there are changes made to the parenting or time sharing plans.
Grazi & Gianino can also help you with enforcing child support agreements if the other parent is not keeping up with regularly scheduled child support payments.
If you have children, are going through a divorce, and need help navigating the process of child support determination, or require legal representation to modify or enforce an existing child support agreement, call the child support attorney (family law attorney) at Grazi & Gianino today at (772) 286-0200.
