Child Support Lawyer

A divorce or break up not only effects the two adults who have decided to part ways. A break up has a deep impact on a couple's children. Children deserve and are entitled to financial support from both parents. Generally, a child support obligation is paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent for child related expenses. Both Ohio and Kentucky have child support guidelines. However, when a couple's income exceeds the guidelines, then the Court decides on a case by case basis what the child support order should be. Our office's Ohio and Kentucky child support attorney can assist in establishing, modifying, and enforcing child support. We have the knowledge to explain the applicable guidelines and how to calculate a parent's income. We can also answer any questions you may have regarding child support and its impact on custody arrangements.

Many parents today are faced with rising healthcare costs and other expenses such as orthodontics which are not typically covered by most health insurance plans. It is reasonable that both parents are expected to help cover these additional expenses. Our office can help facilitate the payment of extraordinary medical expenses.

Often clients reach out when they believe a modification or change should be made to an existing child support order. Each state has its own guidelines that may warrant an upward or downward adjustment to a support order. A few examples of changes which may affect a child support obligation are:

  • job loss or promotion
  • new custody agreement
  • a child graduates from high school

If you believe that you are entitled to a modification of a child support order it is important to reach out to an attorney who knows the applicable law.
