When parents divorce or separate, the needs of the children are the most important consideration for all parties involved. Whether you are establishing child support orders, or having them modified or enforced, it is important to have qualified legal guidance.
At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, our lawyers have extensive experience handling a wide range of child support issues for clients throughout Philadelphia and surrounding areas. We are committed to helping you achieve your legal goals while protecting the best interests of your child.
Establishing Child Support
Child support is determined by a set of guidelines, taking into account a number of factors, including the number of the children, the income of each parent and the needs of the children. Calculating child support can become more complex when a parent is self employed or has hidden income. Our attorneys can help you with all aspects of establishing child support, so your rights and your child’s rights are protected.
Child Support Modifications
If circumstances warrant a change in child support orders, our attorneys can petition the court for a modification of orders. Likewise, if your ex-spouse is seeking a modification that would be unfavorable, we can help you defend against it. Many people do not even realize that they may be entitled to a modification. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney to fully understand your rights and to what you may be entitled. At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, we often run guideline calculations for clients to help them understand these rights under the Pennsylvania child support laws.
Child Support Enforcement
If one parent does not fulfill his or her obligations in regard to child support, the other can take legal action to have orders enforced. Whether you are the paying or receiving spouse, it is important to protect your rights in these matters. An experienced lawyer can make sure that you know your options and fight to get you the child support to which you are entitled.
