Are You Requesting Child Support?
Our Attorneys Can Guide You Through the Process of Getting the Child Support You Need, Step by Step
Child support becomes necessary when two parents separate. Regardless of whether the parents were married or not at the time of separation, Ohio law makes the support of children by their parents a priority. Each parent is responsible for providing financially for the children, and how that occurs is largely determined by the income of each parent and how much time each parent spends with the children.
Requesting child support can be a complicated process, especially in cases where the mother and father were not married at the time of separation. In these cases, it may necessary to establish paternity before child support can be filed for. At Seif & McNamee, LLC, our goal is to help you get the child support you need to adequately and comfortably provide for your children while they are in your care. We are able to utilize our extensive experience with child support cases in order to better help you understand the laws surrounding Ohio child support and how they can affect you and your family.
Are You Being Asked to Pay Child Support?
We Can Help You Ensure the Fairness of Your Case Resolution
One of the primary concerns of individuals who are being asked to pay child support is that they will be required to pay more child support than they can afford. Ohio law dictates that child support be calculated with a pre-determined formula that is largely based on your income. Only a certain percentage of your income can be taken for the purposes of financially supporting your children. However, it may be necessary for you to clearly demonstrate your financial situation to the court in order to ensure your child support payments aren’t too high.
For example, if you have a health condition that requires you to pay significant medical expenses, you may need to bring this information forward to the court. At Seif & McNamee, LLC, we can thoroughly evaluate your financial situation and provide you with the guidance you need to ensure that your child support case is resolved fairly.
