We Handle All Matters Related to Child Support
The amount of monthly support payments is governed by state law. There are a number of online calculators available to use in order to give you an idea of how much you may expect to pay or receive. However, there are many variations to this blanket formula. Our Portland divorce lawyers will make a thorough review of your situation in order to develop a more accurate picture. Armed with this information, we will work to get the family court to enter a fair amount for either the person who will be making payments or the person who will be receiving the payments.
In some cases, a parent may refuse to make support payments. We will bring an enforcement action for contempt to force the parent to pay. If you have fallen behind on making support payments for any reason, we can help you resolve that problem as well. In addition, if payments ever need to be modified, we have extensive experience handling modification actions. In every case, we will operate with both your best interests and the best interests of your children in mind.
