What You Need to Know About Child Support from a Family Law Attorney

Dedicated to your children’s well-being

Parents must consider not only how divorce affects them, but also how it affects their children — both emotionally and financially. Practicing in a variety of aspects in family law, Tanya L. Freeman can provide guidance to you as you develop a child support arrangement.

Tanya L. Freeman has helped parents to:

  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Enforce child support orders
  • Modify child support orders
  • Set appropriate levels of support for children of high wage earners

New Jersey law establishes general child support guidelines. Dedicated child support attorney Tanya L. Freeman can help you understand the basis and structure of these guidelines and how they apply to you, and then help you obtain support payments that best accommodate your financial circumstances and provide for your child’s needs.

 

Child support guidelines

Child support settlements through mediation

Through the structured process of mediation, couples can put aside their differences and focus on the one objective where they tend to agree on their children’s well-being.  In cases involving children of high-wage earners, where the child support will exceed the regular Child Support Guidelines, the parties may decide to mediate the issue of child support.  Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Tanya L. Freeman can guide you through the process toward equitable solutions.

 

Litigation of child support

In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. Tanya L. Freeman will methodically prepare for litigation to assist you in obtaining a support arrangement for your child.

 

Enforcement of child support

If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need assistance to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. Tanya L. Freeman will guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.

 

Modification of child support

Financial problems may put you in a different financial situation than when you and your spouse divorced. Tanya L. Freeman can help you navigate the process of modifying your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.
