Our office understands the difficult issues involved in child support cases. Many of our clients come to us after they have learned that an ex-spouse has found a new job or perhaps has remarried to someone with significant income. Our clients also come to us when other significant life circumstances have changed, meriting either an increase or reduction in child support that the client pays or the client receives.
Aside from modification matters, our office also works closely with our clients to diligently enforce child support payments. It is not unusual in these situations to be seeking hidden assets and performing other fact-specific investigations to determine the exact capacity a spouse may have to make the child support payments in the amount for which they are currently ordered.
No matter whether you are the person seeking to increase the child support you receive or to decrease the amount you pay, our firm understands your side of the matter. Because we regularly advise people concerning any number of questions regarding child support from either side of the fence, we can help you make effective legal arguments that can often successfully anticipate the legal strategies from the other side.
