It's unfortunate, but it happens every day - sometimes the person you had a child with doesn't turn out to be who you thought they would, and the relationship ends. But a parent and child relationship should be lifelong, and children are entitled to receive financial support from both of their parents.


In most casts, child support is  paid to the parent who has primary custody of the child by the parent who has partial custody. The purpose of the payments is to help cover the costs of raising a child. Child support can be in the form of a monthly payment, or you can create a child support agreement between the two biological parents that suits your unique situation. 

Ruppert Law Firm - Child Support

Both parents have a strong interest in making sure the amount of support is appropriate. The parent that receives the support needs to be confident that the payments are enough to cover their child's expenses. The parent that pays the support needs to know that the payments are being used to care for their child. 


Whether you need help figuring out how to calculate or pay child support or you need an advocate to start receiving child support payments, contact us at Ruppert Law Firm today. We can help ensure your child gets the financial security they deserve.
