Harrisonburg Child Support Attorney
While child support is determined largely by a calculation, it is crucial that you work with a skilled lawyer who can provide legal advice and guidance throughout the entire process. If child support is not accurately calculated, it can lead to financial peril for either party.
At Evans Oliver, PLC our Harrisonburg child support lawyers have extensive experience guiding clients through the full range of family law matters. We understand the emotional and financial turmoil that accompanies many family law matters. It is our goal to lead clients through these processes in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
Child support orders are determined by Virginia's child support guidelines. The formula includes various numbers, including the income of both parents and the costs of insurance, day care and other expenses related to the child. Our lawyers will make sure that all calculations are correct and that your interests are protected while determining child support.
Rockingham County Support Modification Lawyer
Even after a child support order is entered, child support is something that can be modified when one or both parties' financial situations have significantly changed. Our attorneys will carefully examine your changing financial situation and fight to ensure the accuracy of your support amount. We can attempt to reach a fair and just financial compromise through negotiation.
Our experienced family law attorneys can also assist you with child support enforcement. Whether you are trying to recover past-due child support through a contempt proceeding or you require enforcement defense, we can represent you. In Virginia, there is a 20-year statute of limitation for child support, which means that back child support will not be forgiven for a very long time, even if the child is now over the age of 18. Judges often impose jail time for nonpayment of child support, so it is important to pursue modification if you are struggling to make child support payments. It is wise to contact a Harrisonburg support enforcement attorney as soon as possible.
