If you anticipate a child support dispute in a divorce; if you need a kid fund order from the court; if you need a support order modified; or if you are not receiving court-ordered payments and seek enforcement, call the Fresno divorce lawyers at Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian today.
You’ll speak to skilled attorneys with more than 75 years of combined experience representing the rights and the best interests of the children involved in divorce.
WE ADVOCATE FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN
In a divorce, either parent may be ordered to pay child support. The precise amount is based on the earning capacity of each parent, the number of children, and the amount of time the children spend with each parent. Child support in most cases is paid until a child is 18. To request child support, you must ask for a court order compelling the other spouse to begin payments. We can help. Since 1992, our lawyers have advocated on behalf of parents and children so that necessary payments are ordered and orders are enforced.
Either parent may ask for a modified support order when a modification is justified by circumstances. Changed circumstances include changes in either parent’s income or changes in a child’s needs. Modification may also be considered when:
either parent has lost a job or been incarcerated
another child has been born to either parent
the amount of time spent with either parent has substantially changed
the child’s child care, educational, or medical needs have changed
any factor emerges that significantly impacts the child or the support order
