In Virginia, both parents are required to financially support their minor children, whether they are married or not. The state's child support guidelines are based on a number of variables and circumstances specific to each parent and child. If you need assistance establishing, modifying, or enforcing child support, Malinowski Hubbard and our team of experienced Fairfax divorce lawyers can guide you. We can steer parents towards fair and balanced solutions while looking out for their child’s best interests.
Child support is usually calculated by looking at:
Our family law attorneys in Fairfaix can help you better understand the state's child support guidelines, how and when they are applied, and if you are eligible to seek a deviation to increase or decrease the amount. If you believe that the other party is not disclosing income or intentionally remaining unemployed or underemployed, we can also help you resolve disputes concerning income calculation. We are dedicated to helping our clients receive or pay the appropriate child support amount for their children.
We understand that a person’s financial circumstances can change, which can make it difficult to maintain the current support payments. You or the other party may have lost a job, become ill, or received a new job or promotion, all of which may warrant a change in child support payments. Our modification lawyers can assist parents with upwards or downwards modification of child support.
From establishing a child support order to modifications and enforcement, our Fairfax family lawyers provide valuable legal guidance to our clients. We have extensive experience resolving child support matters and can work closely with you to implement effective solutions tailored to your goals. To speak with a Fairfax child support lawyer about your concerns, contact our office.
