It used to be that the vast majority of child support matters were fairly cut and dry. However, with the implementation of new statutes pertaining to timesharing, and new case law in the Commonwealth pertaining to the Court’s discretion with respect to child support, determination of the appropriate child support amount can be challenging.
Under certain circumstances, the Court has discretion to deviate from the guidelines upon consideration of a number of factors, including but not limited to equal timesharing. Ensuring that child support is calculated appropriately is important, not just for you, but for your children.
Under any circumstances, the determination of child support without the assistance of competent legal representation can be difficult. As child support is due and owing until the child emancipates, it is important that it is calculated correctly from the beginning. Additionally, there may come a time when circumstances change such that a modification of child support would be warranted. Our attorneys will assist you in seeking such modification.
