Financial Support for Children

After most divorces involving children, it is typical for both parents to want to remain involved in their children's lives regardless of who retains primary custody. However, the ability to financially support a child can become strenuous if proper child support payments are not agreed upon.

Each state has their own rules and guidelines for determining child support after a divorce or separation. Typically the custodial parent will be entitled to child support payments from the noncustodial parent to help pay for the expenses of a minor child. Child support payments are intended to solely benefit the child or children and they should not be used for other expenses. If the custodial parent is also entitled to spousal support, that will be paid in the form of alimony in a separate agreement.

Parents can reach their own agreements regarding child support if they are able to do so amicably or through a mediator. Otherwise, a divorce court judge will determine who should receive custody and what child support payments should be made in order to ensure the well-being of the child or children in question.

Should you decide to seek child support, it is important that you retain the services of a Jacksonville family lawyer who can help you obtain the payments you need to provide for your children. To get legal assistance, contact Hutchinson Law today.
