How is the Amount Determined?
Virginia Code § 20-108.2 is the Virginia law governing child support. The law requires judges to use a specific method to calculate child support. In many cases, our attorneys will be able to provide you with the exact amount that a court would award in child support. In other cases, the calcualtion 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 has special needs, there are excessive transportation costs, or either other parent is self-employed. In these situations, the knowledge and experience of a skilled attorney can be an invaluable asset.
Our attorneys have handled many hundreds of family law cases, in the Virginia Court of Appeals and in circuit courts and juvenile courts across Virginia. Our attorneys also have over a decade of business law experience, which gives us a unique advantage if either parent is self-employed. Our attorneys have served as editors of premier legal journals, have authored scholarly pieces for law reviews, and have been retained by other lawyers specifically for the purpose of using our experience to assist them. Our attorneys 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 attorneys can provide you with the information you need. If you want an attorney to negotiate on your behalf, we have the skill and knowledge necessary to represent your interests both in traditional negotiation or in the collaborative law process. If an agreement cannot be reached, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to aggressively represent your interests at trial or on appeal.
