Skilled Counsel for Child Support Needs

For many people, particularly if both parents are salaried employees, the amount of child support they can expect to receive or pay after a divorce is fairly straightforward because Virginia has clear-cut child support guidelines. In some circumstances, such as if you or your spouse is self-employed, you may need experienced legal counsel to ensure that support is appropriately set.

Whether you need reliable guidance on the child support obligations in a typical divorce settlement or you need a skilled attorney for a special scenario, you can turn to the Fairfax child support attorneys at Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C. We represent clients throughout Northern Virginia in child support and other family law matters.

Experienced Counsel for Special Circumstances

In Virginia, child support is determined using a formula based on the number of children involved, the gross incomes of both parents and the time the children spend with each parent. Expenses such as day care and medical insurance costs are also considered in making a determination. For parents who earn regular salaries and wages, determining child support may not be difficult.

In situations where parents are self-employed, receive regular commissions, bonuses or tips or have alternate sources of income, determining an appropriate amount for child support under the guidelines can be more difficult. In order to ensure that the formula calculates an appropriate amount of child support, you must be able to enter accurate incomes. Your ability to properly provide for your children may rest on your lawyer's skill in establishing each spouse's true gross income. We are skilled at uncovering information beyond testimony or tax returns.
