Child Support that Sustains a Child’s Stability

Ercolano Law helps drive child support solutions that deliver on the financial stability of the child, to ensure that their shelter, food, clothing, and education are all covered without distress. Our experienced child support legal representation will apply all applicable laws available to ensure that a fair and just financial deliberation is provided through the family courts.

What factors are taken into consideration when awarding child support?

Most commonly, the child support amounts are determined at the time of divorce proceedings, but it is up to each party to stay abreast of the very specific needs of their child. This means that the financial obligation must meet the child’s current and ever-changing needs.

What type of child support cases arise?

• Child support calculation:

This is initially determined when child custody is decided, or through child custody cases after the divorce.

• Child support arrears:

Also known as back child support, which is necessary when the obligated party is not upholding their end of the agreement.

• Child support modification:

This is when there is a request to increase or lower child support payments from their initially determined amount.

Ercolano Law understands that merely re-evaluating child support can bring anxiety to either party involved. One party often fears what the other party may think, when requesting changes in the form of an increase or decrease to child support amounts. Moreover, no two children are the same, and neither are their financial necessities.

Perhaps extenuating circumstances, like a change in employment or health, requires that child-support amounts be re-evaluated. Our legal team will lead the charge in advocating for your position, bringing to light the changing life circumstances for re-evaluation.

Other changing life circumstances or expenses that can trigger cause for re-evaluations include:

  • Child’s change in age
  • Clothing
  • Driving expenses
  • Educational needs
  • Entertainment
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Transportation
