Child support can arise in both family court and divorce court situations. Child support is money that one spouse pays each month to support his or her child or children. The amount of child support is easily determined and is based on the gross income of each parent.
If you are facing a situation in which you are behind in child support payments, we can also assist you in those proceedings. By evaluating your income and that of the other parent, we may be able to lower the child support payments and set you up on a payment plan to pay the past due amount as well. Additionally, a chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to pay back the past due child support (child support arrearage) over a period of up to 5 years.
