Child Support

At Guardline Law, we understand the importance of ensuring financial support for children. We also understand that child support is not a underhanded way to obtain financial support for a former spouse or romantic partner.  Child support should always be ordered in the best interest of the minor children, and used for the same.  We provide compassionate and strategic representation to clients facing challenges in obtaining, enforcing or modifying child support orders.  Every case is different and requires a dedicated advocate to ensure a fair outcome.

What is Child Support? Understanding the Basics

Child support is a legal obligation that parents have to financially support their children. This support is intended to cover the child’s basic needs, including housing, education, healthcare, and more. In Florida, child support matters are typically addressed during divorce or paternity proceedings, establishing a legal framework for financial contributions from one parent to the other.

Proceedings Leading to Child Support Orders: Navigating Family Law Matters

Child support orders can arise from various family law proceedings, including:

  1. Divorce Cases: Determining child support is a common aspect of divorce proceedings involving minor children.
  2. Paternity Actions: Establishing paternity often involves addressing child support responsibilities.
  3. Modification Proceedings: Changes in circumstances may warrant modifications to existing child support orders.

Our family law attorney is experienced in handling all of these proceedings with sensitivity and efficiency.

Child Support Enforcement: Ensuring Compliance

Enforcing child support orders is crucial for the well-being of children. Our attorneys assist clients in enforcing child support orders through various means, including:

  1. Awards for Arrears: Seeking court-ordered payments for past-due child support.
  2. Wage Garnishment Orders: Obtaining court orders to deduct child support directly from the paying parent’s wages.
  3. Potential for Incarceration: Pursuing legal action, including contempt proceedings, to address non-compliance.

We work tirelessly to ensure that child support obligations are met, holding non-compliant parents accountable.

How an Attorney Can Assist: Obtaining and Enforcing Child Support Orders

Our family law attorneys play a crucial role in assisting clients with child support matters by:

  1. Negotiating Fair Terms: Advocating for fair and reasonable child support terms during divorce or paternity proceedings.
  2. Drafting Comprehensive Agreements: Ensuring that child support orders are clear, comprehensive, and legally sound.
  3. Enforcing Existing Orders: Taking swift and effective legal action to enforce child support orders through the appropriate legal channels.

Our goal is to provide comprehensive legal support to clients, promoting the best interests of the child and ensuring financial stability.
