The intention of child support is to provide a child’s legal guardian with adequate support. The duty of a child support lawyer is to ensure that the child’s custodian is compensated by any individual that’s also legally responsible for caring for the child. If you feel that you aren’t receiving adequate compensation for caring for your child, or if you’ve just settled a custody battle and would like to seek child support compensation, seek out representation from your local child support attorney here at Rice Law. We represent local Maryland residents throughout Baltimore County, Dundalk, Howard, Anne Arundel, and Rosedale.
In a child support dispute, a judge will determine an adequate amount of compensation for child support. This figure can depend upon a number of factors:
Custody Rights & Visitation Rights: The amount of money to be paid to a guardian may be partially determined by the custody and visitation rights of any parents, custodians, or legal guardian(s) involved.
Incomes: The income of the aforementioned parents, custodians, or legal guardians may also be taken into consideration.
Child Care Expense: Any cost associated with caring for a child or children may be taken into consideration when determining child support payments to be settled.
Healthcare Costs: A child’s health care costs may also be considered when settling on appropriate monetary compensation for child support.
Any and all of the mentioned factors can determine the amount of child support to be provided to a child’s legal custodian. Seek representation from our Baltimore child support attorney if you believe you should receive child support financing or if you believe you currently have unjust child support financing.
