Honest Advice and Straightforward Guidance Helping You and Your Family Through Sensitive Times

Speak with a Compassionate Jackson Child Support Lawyer

Experienced & Trusted Family Law Firm in Jackson

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.

Determining Child Support in Tennessee

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.

A few factors used to determine the amount of child support include:

  • Cost of daily/regular expenses
  • Health insurance costs
  • Other child support obligations
  • Parent's income/current job
  • Ability to pay child support
  • Education level

Child Support Order Enforcements

Child support is a serious matter - it directly affects 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 Clarksville and Jackson family law attorney from our team who can assist you.
