Experienced Attorneys Providing Guidance In Pennsylvania Child Support
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.
The attorneys at Ruppert Law Firm LLC can assist you with all aspects of your family law case, whether you need an initial child support award as part of divorce and custody proceedings or whether you need to enforce or modify an existing custody order. Our top priority is to ensure that your children have the resources that they need, while also protecting your financial health and overall well-being.
Balancing Competing Interests And Ensuring Fairness
In most cases, 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. 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 they can sustainably afford payments and that the money is being used to care for their child or children.
Regardless of which side you are on, we are here to help you find a solution that works for everyone. 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. If either parent experiences a significant change in income or the children experience a significant change in financial need, we can help you petition the court to modify the existing child support order (or seek to prevent a change, depending on your position).
