It’s natural for parents to want the best for their child, especially following a divorce. The child support system is intended to ensure that your child receives the financial assistance they need in order to grow and thrive. Usually, the Nebraska court will order the child’s non-custodial parent to make monthly child support payments to the custodial parent in order to help cover the costs associated with raising the child. If you have questions about the child support process, or you need help resolving a child support dispute, contact Chapin Law Office to discuss your needs with an experienced family law attorney today.
In divorce proceedings that involve children, the issue of child support will likely arise. Once custody arrangements have been established, the judge will seek to ensure that both parents are contributing meaningfully to the child’s upbringing. One parent may be compelled to pay child support to the parent who serves as the child’s primary custodian, ensuring that both parents are financially supporting the child. These child support payments can help to cover important needs the child has, like clothing, food, educational costs, medical costs, and more.
Sometimes, disputes may arise when one parent feels the amount of child support they are being required to pay is too much. Or, perhaps the custodial parent learned that the other parent recently inherited a substantial amount of money, and they want to ask the court to adjust the amount of child support accordingly. When it comes to child support, there are a number of issues that may arise at any time, so working with a seasoned family law attorney can help you understand your legal options and your best path forward.
