Experienced Child Support Attorneys In Auburn

When parents divorce or unmarried parents split up, both remain responsible for the financial support of their children. In most cases, one parent must provide child support for the children's care and well-being.

Whether you are seeking support for your children or paying child support, an experienced family law attorney can help you navigate the process and will advocate for the best interests of your children. At Beverlye Brady and Associates, our child support attorneys can guide you through initial support determinations as well as modifications and enforcement issues.

How Is Child Support Determined In Alabama?

In Alabama, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that take into account factors such as:

  • The number of children
  • The income of each parent
  • Cost of work-related child care and health insurance coverage for the children
  • Special needs of the children

While these factors appear to be straightforward, it is important to give proper thought and consideration to the needs of your children. It is important to paint a complete picture of a family's finances to ensure that children are receiving the amount of support that is proper for their living situation.

Enforcement And Modification Of Support Orders

Child support determinations are not set in stone. Failure to adjust support payments can result in the overpayment or underpayment of support. In some cases, a parent may intentionally or unintentionally neglect to make the required payments.

We can help enforce support orders if you and your children are not receiving the agreed upon payments. We can also help you seek a modification of a support order if there has been a change in circumstances from the last court order. In every case, we are committed to helping our clients achieve a fair resolution.
