Child Support

Child Support is simply the money paid by one parent to the other parent or custodian to be used to financially support the children.  Whether you are paying or receiving child support, it sometimes becomes necessary to go to court for child support matters.

If you receive child support, but the amount set is less than it should be, we can help you get back into court to have your child support amount adjusted to where it should be.  If your circumstances have changed, and you are now paying more child support than you can afford, child support attorney Cali Armstrong can help you address this issue in court to show why your child support payments should be lowered.  In either circumstance, you should act as soon as the situation arises which could change the amount of support – time you waste will simply be wasted money – whether you are the receiving or the paying party.

Alabama’s child support laws use a formula to compute the amount of support to be paid based on the income of both parents, and the needs of the child.  The formula takes into consideration such expenses as health care insurance, day care costs, and other particular financial needs and circumstances.  If these specific expenses have changed this could present a reason for your child support to be recalculated.

Are you supposed to be receiving child support, but the other parent is refusing to pay? Cali Armstrong can help you make sure the other parent does what he has been court ordered to do.  Alabama takes payment of child support very seriously.  We will bring the “deadbeat” parent not paying his or her child support before the court and ask that the court enforce the order and exercise its authority to hold the nonpaying party in contempt of court.  On the other hand, if you are being dragged into court unfairly for failure to pay child support, we can help you present your case to the court.

Whatever your child support issue, attorney Cali Armstrong has the experience and knowledge to handle your situation.  Call today for a consultation.
