Clearwater Child Support Attorney
Figure Out Child Support Issues with an Experienced Lawyer
Every parent wants to make sure that his or her children are supported and have the resources necessary to get quality health care, education, shelter and other basic needs. Child support is designed to provide those resources but it is important to ensure that you are receiving — or paying — the proper amount of support under the law. An experienced Clearwater child support attorney can explain the system to you and how to protect your rights.
At the Law Offices of Gale H. Moore, P.A., in Largo, Florida, we can help you understand complex family law issues, including child support in a divorce or paternity case as well as when support orders need to be modified after a judgment is issued. Since 1998, our practice has focused on family law matters and attorney Gale Moore has a thorough understanding of the guidelines used to determine support. We can explain those guidelines to you and work hard to resolve your financial disputes.
Child Support Guidelines in Florida
While child support can seem complex, the state uses a fairly simple and straightforward formula to calculate child support. Certain factors — such as time sharing arrangements, your income and certain expenses — are entered into the calculation. This formula is supposed to ensure that each parent meets their fair responsibility for the financial welfare of the children.
One of the most important jobs of a family lawyer is to ensure that correct information goes into this formula. At our firm, we work to ensure that you are not paying more or receiving less support than the law provides.
Resolve Child Custody Issues Together
Our firm also encourages parents to resolve child support issues outside of the court system. When parents can arrive at amicable resolutions, it is typically easier on everyone, including the children. It can also help save a great deal of money, time and stress. Attorney Gale Moore can help you arrive at arrangements through mediation, collaborative law and settlement.
