Newport News Child Support Lawyer

Child support obligations in Virginia are set by state guidelines that look at a variety of factors in order to achieve a support level that provides for the child's needs while remaining cognizant of each parent's financial situation. Income is the main factor that the formula in the state guidelines considers. Ensuring that the court takes a proper look at your income and your child's other parent's income can be key to securing a child support obligation that accurately reflects the reality of your circumstances.

A judge can deviate from the state guidelines if he or she can justify that course of action. Issues such as disability and substantial financial assets may be grounds for deviation.

Having a skilled and experienced attorney advocate for you is the most reliable way to secure a child support obligation that meets your child's needs without overly burdening either household's finances.
