Securing Favorable Child Support Orders
In Virginia, a variety of factors affects the amount each parent is required to pay monthly. The formula for determining support payments includes number of dependent children, income, work related child care, the cost incurred to provide medical insurance, and custody obligations. This amount is not set in stone, however, and under appropriate circumstances a deviation from the child support guideline may be warranted.
Our lawyers represent parents who challenge support orders based on other considerations such as:
- Responsibilities to other children born outside the marriage
- Payment for extracurricular activities, insurance coverage, educational expenses or co-payments not covered by health insurance
- Expenses related to raising a child with special needs
- Travel expenses incurred during visitation
Whether you are fighting to decrease or increase the support order, our attorneys can represent your side in court.
Ensuring You Receive The Alimony You Deserve
In contrast to child support payments, alimony payments are not required by the state. Family court judges use their discretion when ordering spousal support.
The sacrifices you made during your marriage encouraged your family’s success whether you worked outside the home or played a primary role in raising your children. Now that you are engaged in divorce, it is vital that your alimony agreement reflects your contributions.
Our attorneys design aggressive strategies to secure payments that help you maintain your standard of living after your divorce.
