Child Support Disputes During Divorce

Olathe Child Support Attorney By Your Side

Child support amounts are often determined by the math of the guidelines. For example, there are local Johnson County Family Law Guidelines which provide a formula for determining child support obligations. Your family law lawyer can have an impact on how that will be calculated and determined. The Domestic Relations Affidavits (DRA) will play a significant role in determining child support.

Importance of Obtaining Child Support

In divorce cases where children are involved, things can become much more complicated, especially when it comes to child custody and support. Children have little say in divorce situations, which is why the court takes their best interest into consideration and grants an order requiring the one or both parents to make monthly support payments for the sake of the child. This way the child does not have to suffer as much due to loss of income after their parents separate.

Whether or not you have been granted custody of your child, make sure that they receive the support they need and deserve from the other parent. Contact a Johnson County divorce attorney today to represent you in court as you fight for the benefit of your child and their future.

Necessary Enforcement of Divorce Orders

Child support orders may be established for the sake of the child's maintenance and education until they are 18 or graduate high school, as found in K.S.A. § 23-3001. The amount of child support will vary since it depends on the income of both parents, the needs of the child, and the state of the child mentally, physically and emotionally (K.S.A. § 23-3002). In order to ensure that your child or children receive the support they need from the other parent, be sure to hire a family law attorney with the experience and skill to argue on your behalf.
