At Casey, Simmons & Bryant, PLLC, our Jackson family law attorneys represent a wide range of cases, including child support disputes. The goal of Tennessee judges and family courts is to ensure children do not suffer as a result of divorce. They prioritize the well-being of the child when making decisions during the proceeding.
There are significant changes your children will have to go through during a divorce, but this does not mean their lifestyle needs to change entirely. By establishing a child support agreement, we can help see that your children do not experience a diminished quality of life due to lack of financial support.
Certain state guidelines allow a judge to calculate and assign the amount of support one parent must pay another, typically to the parent with primary custody. Hiring a Jackson family law attorney to represent you is always advisable to ensure a fair outcome is reached. We can help you understand the types of factors which will be considered and what type of payments you may be able to expect.
Child support is a serious matter - it directly effects the well-being of your child. If your ex-spouse was required to pay child support and fails to stick to the terms of the order, you may need to take enforcement actions. Withholding child support payments is illegal, but you cannot take other illegal actions to try to force the other parent to pay. Instead, take action by speaking with a caring Jackson family law attorney from our team who can assist you.
