Child Support

Financial payments for the support of a minor child are designed to meet a child’s reasonable need for health, education, and maintenance.  In a majority of child support cases, the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines are used to calculate a presumptive amount of child support based on several factors; including the relative income of the parties and the present child custody arrangement.  Our family law attorneys have extensive experience in appropriately applying the Child Support Guidelines to obtain a level of financial support which best meets the needs of the child.

Our attorneys also have experience in a plethora of other issues relating to child support, including but not limited to actions to modify child support, actions for contempt for failure to pay child support, actions to deviate from the presumptive North Carolina Child Support Guidelines, wage withholding, appropriate allocation of medical expenses for the children, and child support litigation involving high income parents.
