Raising children is one of life's most rewarding experiences. Along with that joy, however, comes some great challenges, not the least of which involves financial support.
If you are going through a divorce, you can expect these challenges to be magnified, but by working with an experienced child support attorney, you can help make sure your child's needs are met while maintaining your financial stability.
Finding Solutions That Work For You And Your Children
In North Carolina, child support is calculated based on standard guidelines that take into account each parent's gross monthly income, child care costs and benefits like health or life insurance. Beyond this, additional child care needs must be outlined in agreements between parents.
At The Maitland Law Firm, PLLC we emphasize the needs of the child(ren) involved in child support disputes and agreements. What are their educational needs? What are their health care needs? How much time will the child spend living with each parent after the divorce is final?
By working one-on-one with our clients, we often achieve more customized child support plans and support modifications than what the standard support calculations allow.
Litigation sometimes takes us to court. When it does, we aggressively take on the opposing party, but we still value opportunities to negotiate favorable settlements outside of court. It can help our clients save money, stress, time and the headaches associated with rulings that do not reflect the unique nature of our clients' needs.
