Children and Divorce- Getting the Child Support You Deserve

Anyone who says divorce is easy either has no idea what they’re talking about or they were represented by the greatest team of lawyers ever assembled. Divorce is rarely an easy process and one aspect that always complicates matters is also one of the most delicate to approach; what happens with the children. It’s hard enough to tell children what divorce will mean for them in terms that they will understand, particularly if they are very young. Whenever the experienced lawyers at Brodzki Jacobs & Associates take on a divorce case where children are involved, they understand that there are certain issues that need to be addressed. Living arrangements are often some of the most difficult to agree on, not to mention the negotiation of child support payments. One of the best ways to ensure your children get everything they need is when you have a knowledgeable and dedicated lawyer working for you.

Child support is regularly scheduled payments made by a parent which supports the financial burden of raising a child. In the majority of cases, child support payments are made by the parent who does not have the children the majority of the time. Even in a scenario where both parents have an equal share of custody, the parent who earns a higher income pays child support to the parent who earns less income.  There are several factors to consider in calculating child support including the number of children, parental income, the time-sharing scheduel, taxes, insurance coverage, day care expenses and the special needs of each child.

Child support is far from a static agreement however, as changing circumstances can cause payment amounts to change over time. For example, if the parent designated to make payments is promoted at their job then their ex-spouse can petition for higher payments. It also works the other way, so if a parent is laid off, they can petition the court for a reduction in the payment amount. Having an experienced divorce attorney on your side is extremely valuable when petitioning the court.
