Guilford County Child Support Lawyer and Family Law SpecialistFinancial aspects of child-rearing are also essential to determine. State child support guidelines help determine which parent will pay child support to the other and if so, how much. However, the guidelines are often in dispute and in some cases, they might not be applied at all.Determining what constitutes “income” for purposes of child support may not be as cut and dry as it appears. Some people receive bonuses, disability payments, cash settlements, and other forms of non-traditional, irregular or non-recurring income. All of these must be considered and there are different formulas used to determine how to apply these forms of income to the guidelines.Insurance costs and extraordinary expenses related to children must also be taken into account.Temporary unemployment or reduced wages must be considered when structuring a child support order to ensure that flexibility is in place to properly adjust support when those circumstances change.Enforcement of child support and modification of child support are also areas of frequent concern. If you aren’t getting the support that you are entitled to under the terms of a court order or separation agreement, I can help. If you are being pursued for non-payment of support and face possible contempt of court that could lead to serving time in jail, I can help. In these situations, it is important to have a lawyer who is not only highly familiar with child support laws but also knowledgable about the law of contempt.Just as there are legitimate grounds to modify child support upwards, there are also grounds to modify support downwards. A deep knowledge of these grounds is important to pursuing or defending your case.I urge you to review my page on frequently asked questions about child support for a greater understanding of how the child support laws work and important things that you need to know about this issue.To discuss your concerns and questions about child support with an experienced family law attorney in Greensboro, contact me to schedule a consultation.The Spagnola Law Firm Serves All Guilford County Communities, Including High Point · Child Support Issues· Hire a Legal SpecialistI am Samuel S.
