Child Support Attorney in Batavia
Working to Create or Modify Child Support Arrangements
Child support is an important aspect of divorce because it involves minor children. Both parents are responsible for providing financial support for their kids, but in some situations, one parent will provide an added sum of money called “child support” to assist the other parent in their children’s financial matters for a certain period of time. The purpose of child support is to ensure that kids can enjoy the same lifestyle as they did prior to their parents’ separation.
Why You Should Collect Child Support
You should seek child support because it better guarantees a healthy future for your children. Parents have a legal obligation to financially support their children's future, but every family is different and has unique circumstances that might require a child support plan. In some cases, one parent provides child support to the other parent without the legal pressure to do so. In other cases, however, parents abandon their child support obligations and leave the other parent struggling financially.

Personalized Counsel for Your Child Support Needs
Every family's situation is unique; therefore, I assess each case with a unique approach. I apply a personalized perspective to each case to help clients reach a cordial agreement that brings peace and stability to all involved.
I can meet with you to discuss the amount that the co-parent of your child should rightfully pay to support your child. The court determines the amount of child support owed using a set formula and considers other factors to make a final decision. The state child support laws require a certain percentage of the noncustodial party's income to be the base amount of child support:
- If there is one child involved, at least 20% of the parent's income will be required
- If there are six or more children, at least 50% of the parent’s income will be required
