Gresham Child Support Lawyers
Acting in Your Child’s Best Interests
In a divorce, issues involving the children can be among the most hotly contested. Child support is a contentious but vital aspect of many divorces. Though child support is intended to ensure that children receive the care they need, many parents bicker over who should have to pay and how much they should be expected to pay.
At Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law, our goal is to protect your child’s best interests. Our child support attorneys in Gresham can help you navigate the process of negotiating a fair arrangement or can fight for you in the courtroom if litigation becomes necessary.
Discuss your case with us during an initial consultation. Schedule yours by calling (503) 470-2230.
Calculating Child Support in Oregon
In Oregon, child support is largely determined by a calculation based on the child support guidelines established by the state. Though this number is achieved with a formula, it is wise to retain a skilled lawyer to ensure that the calculated amount is fair and reasonable.
Several factors must be examined, including:
- Educational costs
- Health care premiums
- Extracurricular activities
At GFBL, we help parents in Gresham and beyond negotiate fair and reasonable child support orders. Our firm can fight for you whether you are seeking support or being asked to pay it.
Adjusting Child Support to Ensure a Fair Order
Child support guidelines are reviewed and changed every few years. As such, if your child support award is from a judgment entered years ago, the amount of child support may need to be reviewed. Our Gresham child support attorneys can help you modify your award. We can also help you enforce your child support order if the other parent of your child is not making payments in full or on time.
