We all have heard that children are expensive; however, one does not fully understand the extent of this statement until they have had a child of their own. This task is usually manageable with a two-income household or one parent staying at home to care for the child to offset the high costs of childcare. But when parents are no longer together, this can make it challenging to meet the financial needs of a child, especially when a non-custodial parent is not providing child support to the custodial parent.
Legal matters involving children are one of the most sensitive. This is why the legal team at Mary Kay Kramer, P.C., delicately handles these cases. Our law firm is aware that with child support issues also come other legal issues, such as divorce or custody. Therefore, we are dedicated to helping our clients make sense of this emotional and overwhelming situation.
Once the goals and needs of our clients are understood, our law firm takes the time to map out a strategy. In most cases, this means negotiating with opposing counsel and attempting to settle the matter out of court. If this cannot be achieved, our legal team is prepared to take the matter to court.
Seeking child support is important, as it ensures that the needs of the child are met. Our law firm takes the time to assess these needs, which can be based on the medical and childcare needs of the child and other factors. Then, the incomes of each parent will be considered in the calculation for the support payments.
