How Child Support Issues May Affect Your Future And Your Family

In California, child support is determined by state guidelines that take into account factors like each parent’s resources and the amount of time a child lives with each parent. At Kempen&Company, when representing a parent in a case including child support we take nothing for granted. We investigate carefully to ensure “the other parent’s” income is truthfully discovered and presented to the court. We also advise clients on every way to ensure their own facts are fairly evaluated.

Enforcement Is The Thing!

Once a judge orders child support to begin, there will not be a lot of “wiggle room.” The next phase of your case is to ensure you receive your child support as ordered and/or that you are not accused of failing to pay if you are the paying parent.

  • Having a support order and actually getting support are two different things.
  • On the other hand, being ordered to pay child support you cannot afford is a major challenge for many divorced and separated parents.

We are here for you in either scenario. Being stuck not receiving what the court ordered or being in default with a payment order is a situation that cannot be ignored.

Are you struggling to make ends meet financially because you’re not getting the child support you are owed?

If you are having trouble getting the child support you are owed, consult with an attorney as soon as a pattern of nonpayment develops. The longer you delay, the worse the problem is likely to get. It is best to hold the non-paying parent accountable right away to increase the chance you will get back the full support you are owed.

At Kempen&Company, we skillfully protect our clients’ rights in the most direct, effective methods available. We also petition for child support modifications when significant changes in parents’ finances or life circumstances make them appropriate.

Do you owe back child support you can’t pay?

Take action now! The penalties are strict for nonpayment of child support orders, and you could find yourself without a driver’s license or in jail. There are alternatives to ignoring the situation. With a client-centered lawyer on your side, you will have the backing you need to prevent trouble while making whatever adjustments you need to make to get your child support payments back on track.
