Virginia Child Support
How is Child Support Determined?
Virginia Code § 20-108.2 is the Virginia law governing child support. The law requires judges to calculate child support using a specific method. In many cases, our lawyers will be able to provide you with the exact amount that a court would award in child support. Oher times, calculating the amount of child support is more complex. For instance, there may be a dispute over how much a parent is earning (or should be earning), a child is disabled, the parties have excessive transportation costs, or either parent is self-employed. In these situations, the knowledge and experience of a skilled child support lawyer is an invaluable asset.
Our child support lawyers have handled hundreds of family law cases. The firm’s lawyers also have over a decade of business law experience, which gives us a unique advantage if either parent is self-employed or there are questions about business income or taxes. We have edited premier legal journals and have authored scholarly pieces for law reviews. We have been retained by other lawyers specifically for the purpose of using our experience to assist them. Our lawyers are also frequent lecturers on family law matters.
Helping You Resolve Child Support Disputes
If you want to attempt to reach an agreement with the other parent on your own or through mediation, our child support lawyers can provide you with the information you need. Or, if you want a child support lawyer to negotiate on your behalf, we have the skill and knowledge necessary to represent your interests in a negotiation. In the event an agreement cannot be reached, our child support lawyers have the knowledge and experience to aggressively represent your interests at trial or on appeal.
