The Growing Complexities of Child Support
A growing issue in family law is the inter-play between possession time and child support. With equal possession time growing as a movement in some courts, as well as becoming part of many parenting agreements, the issue of child support is no longer as simple as it once was. Who should pay what to who when the parties have equal time with the children is not a question simply answered.
That is why it is important to have an experienced attorney to partner with that can help you through the entire child support order process. Whether you are at the beginning stages of child support or want help with an existing order that needs a modification or enforcement, the Family Law attorneys at Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen are ready to take on your case and get working for you.
