Trusted Virginia Beach Child Support Lawyers with the Experience You Need

One of the most reputable child support law firms in the Norfolk area is ready to help

Most parents understand that their obligations to their children don’t end following a divorce. To ensure that children remain adequately supported should their parents choose to divorce, the state of Virginia has clear outlines about how the noncustodial parent will continue to help provide for the material needs of the child.

Child support rulings on the amount of money to be paid can be quite contentious. The custodial parent may feel the amount specified in the support ruling is not sufficient, while the noncustodial parent may feel it is excessive. As knowledgeable Virginia Beach child support attorneys, Harding, Harding & Harding Attorneys at Law can help explain the process and negotiate your particular child support matter to a satisfactory conclusion.

A Norfolk child support lawyer explains how amounts are determined

Virginia state laws and codes are used to determine child support awards when the parents no longer live together. While these laws are strict, they do allow courts to ask the following questions to determine a final amount:

  • What are the noncustodial parent’s sources of income?
  • Does the noncustodial parent have other children to support?
  • Is the parent unemployed or underemployed voluntarily?
  • Are there day care or activities expenses to consider?
  • Has support for health care already been considered?
  • Does the child have any special needs that require more support?

A knowledgeable child support attorney in the Chesapeake, Norfolk and Virginia Beach area can analyze your personal situation and explain what these laws and guidelines mean to you. Also, an attorney can help you obtain child support modifications, but only if your specific circumstances allow.
