Child Support

Huntersville Child Support Attorney

Child Support: Rights & Responsibilities of North Carolina Parents

In a divorce or a paternity case, the determination and award of child support may be in order. This can be a complex matter, however, and involving an attorney may be in your best interests to ensure your children are properly cared for and that your financial situation is accurately presented. Serving Huntersville and the surrounding areas in North Carolina, David Self Law, PLLC is here to guide you through your child support matter.

I can offer my counsel as an experienced trial lawyer and mediator to help you answer such questions as:

  • Will you be entitled to receive or required to pay child support?
  • How is child support calculated?
  • Can you negotiate for a different child support amount?
  • What can be done to enforce child support that isn’t getting paid?
  • Can you modify an existing child support order?

Find out how I can work as your child support attorney to protect your interests while ensuring your child or children get the care and support they need. Call (980) 223-3340 today!

Working Within & Beyond Child Support Guidelines

Child support guidelines are meant to be just that: guidelines. They provide a foundation upon which a workable child support arrangement can be built. This means that there is some leeway in deciding upon an amount that works for each family. Some children may have special medical or educational needs, and some affluent families may wish to pay for private education or enrichment activities that should continue even after a divorce.

By assessing your unique goals and the needs of your child or children, I can work with you to create a case that pursues the child support you need or protects your financial security if you’re meant to pay child support. I can do it all within the bounds of North Carolina child support laws.

Child Support Enforcement

Has your spouse fallen behind on child support payments? Have you been accused of failing to pay child support? I offer my services as a Huntersville child support attorney to represent parents in pursuing or challenging enforcement proceedings. Situations such as this can quickly escalate, but I know how to take a proactive approach to protect my clients’ interests.

Modifications of Child Support

Is the original child support order no longer workable due to a significant change in circumstances? A substantial increase or decrease in income or a change in a child’s needs could warrant a modification of child support. I can talk to you about whether this is applicable in your case and how to proceed in requesting or challenging a modification.
