At the Law Offices of Deborah R. Eisenberg, our experienced child support lawyer will work hard to ensure the financial security of your children. We can also assist you if you need a modification of payment as a result of changed circumstances.
We can assist with any of the following child support matters:
- Child support enforcement
- Child support modifications
- Wage garnishment
In determining child support, the state has established guidelines for how much a child should receive. The amounts will be based on the net incomes of both parties. Many issues arise where one or both parties are self employed. Wages can be difficult to determine and amounts of payment hard to ascertain. Another common issue arises if an individual is not working, but should be or is under-employed. In this case the court will look at earning potential based on education, training, and experience.
If you are currently paying child support and have had a substantial change in circumstances, you may be able to get a modification to your payment requirements. The court may reduce your payments if you have been laid off, if you have received a pay cut, or if you have become disabled. Child support modifications can only be adjusted through a court order.
Child support is always modifiable either up or down based on changed circumstances. If you are seeking the increase or decrease of a child support payment, please contact the Law Offices of Deborah R. Eisenberg, LLC for assistance. Our attorney would be happy to meet with you regarding your case and provide you with an assessment.
