Child Support

Virginia Child Support Laws

The Code of Virginia sets guidelines which determine child support obligations, taking into consideration each parent’s income, health insurance, day care, the time the child spends with each parent, support obligation for other children, alimony, and possibly other factors.

Support calculations are not necessarily easy; you need a skilled attorney to analyze any complexities that warrant consideration. In addition, Virginia courts may deviate from the guidelines and you need an experienced attorney to help you determine why there should or should not be a deviation.

There are complicating factors, such as voluntary underemployment, which may cause the court to deviate from the guidelines. If you would like to discuss child support with a lawyer, contact our Richmond area family law firm and make arrangements for a consultation.

Regardless of how the support agreement is reached, it is important that parents shelter children from financial battles. Our attorneys will counsel you on how to help your children emotionally as well as financially.

Modifications to child support are possible if circumstances change.

We are creative planners, capable of helping you successfully resolve your child support and related family law matters out of court when you and your spouse can work together cooperatively – potentially saving a great deal of time, energy, frustration, and money. However, we understand that not all cases can be successfully resolved through negotiations. If your case cannot be amicably resolved through agreement we can refer you to litigators to fight for you in court.

If you are concerned about your rights and your child’s need for a modification in support, contact our Virginia divorce lawyer today.
