Child Support & Spousal Support

Client-Centered Representation for Support Issues

Have family law issues such as child support or spousal support become points of contention in your contested or uncontested divorce? Are the obligations in your divorce settlement going unsatisfied? Are you receiving too little child support? Are you paying too much spousal support?

At Morris & Morris, we seek amicable agreements regarding support matters whenever possible, but we are also prepared to litigate if that is the best method available to accomplish your goals.

We know that spousal support may be your only financial security as you face an uncertain future. We also understand that the downturn in the economy has thrown many people out of work, and limited their ability to pay child support.

Whatever your situation, our family-focused law firm can supply you and your family with proven solutions. We are happy to handle every detail and address any question or concern you might have.

The task of sorting out the spousal support, or alimony, portion of your divorce settlement can be tremendously detailed work. There are questions as to the amount and durations of spousal support as well as tax and insurance-related questions that must be taken into account. However, you can rest assured that we are looking out for you best interests and will handle each aspect thoroughly in order to avoid surprises later on.

We can also explain the basics of child support guidelines and calculations. The guidelines generally will dictate that a paying parent devote a certain percentage of his or her income as child support. We can help you determine a division of expenses for a child's education and medical care if that is not covered by the child support payments.

If your personal, career or financial circumstances change and a modification of support payments are in order, we can represent you in your request to modify or enforce a support obligation.
