Child Support

Each year millions of parents across the country seek judicial intervention in child support matters. Courts generally adhere to an objective process when determining the proper child support amount. Whether you are a single parent seeking child support or a non-custodial parent with questions about your current support order, William J. Berman can help to ensure that your children receive or modify the necessary financial support consistent with your income as well as your ex-partner’s earnings.

Calculation of Child Support
Child support calculation is generally based upon a number of financial factors pertaining to both parties. Bill's experience will help you compile your financial information as well as ascertain the other parent’s current situation in order to make certain your support obligation is fair in light of both party’s monthly income and lifestyle. Factors commonly considered by family court judges include:

  • Employment income
  • Childcare expenses 
  • Extraordinary medical expenses for the child
  • Each parent’s contribution to extra-curricular expenses
  • Costs of daycare or private school tuition
  • Number of children involved in the action
  • Number of dependents of either party not involved in the action
  • Total gross earned income
  • Total gross unearned income
  • Total alimony paid or received
  • Cost of health insurance

Modifying a Current Child Support Order
If you already have a child support order in place, you may be in need of a modification of the monthly obligation. In general, a court may modify a child support order if it finds the financial status of either party has substantially changed and the current support obligation is no longer fair. For instance, if the parent paying support suddenly becomes disabled and is no longer able to work, the court will likely consider reducing the support obligation to meet the current income level. Conversely, if either parent experiences a sudden increase in monthly income, the court may decide to increase the monthly support amount.  If you require a modification to your child support order, Bill will help your compile the requisite financial documentation and present your case presentation to the judge in the proceeding.

Whether you are the obligor or obligee, Bill can work with you to obtain a child support amount that reflects the best interests of your children. If you are having difficulty meeting your monthly support obligation or believe your child’s parent is able to pay more than the amount in the current order, Bill will work diligently to achieve a modification of support on your behalf.
