Your Voice In Life's Uncertain Times

Understanding Your Financial Rights And Responsibilities For Child Support

Raising children is expensive. During a marriage, many parents benefit from sharing dual incomes and splitting expenses. After a divorce, many parents are left wondering how they will make ends meet or how much child support they will be expected to pay. In Wisconsin, child support is determined based on a state-mandated formula.

If you have questions regarding your child support responsibilities or rights, an experienced West Bend child support attorney can help. Mayer Law Office, LLC, has more than 25 years of experience helping individuals understand the family law process and finding favorable solutions.

Child Support Enforcement

When child support is being determined, the placement or visitation schedule is one of the largest factors in determining how much support must be paid. However, despite agreeing on a payment schedule, some parents fail to continually meet their support obligations. Attorney Catherine Terry works with parents to enforce support orders that are not being followed.

Child Support Modifications

In some situations, a parent may have (what they consider to be) a good reason for not making payments on their child support. Job loss, medical bills or a substantial change in circumstances may render one parent unable to pay his or her child support. In those situations, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you realize you are unable to make payments. Any substantial change in circumstances may make you eligible for a child support modification.
