Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton Support Attorney

In Pennsylvania, child support is paid to the custodial parent. The amount of support is determined using guidelines that take into account the net income of both parents, their earning potential and how many nights per year the child spends with each parent. Any miscalculations could result in an incorrect support amount. That’s why it is important to have a lawyer representing you.

Support for a spouse during a divorce is also based upon guidelines, taking into account any child support as well.

We will review your financial situation and ensure you have the right documentation. We also will ensure that any tax deductions are excluded from your income to put you in the most favorable financial position. In extraordinary circumstances, a deviation may be justified such as when a child has unusual issues. Our attorneys will ensure that the guidelines are applied properly to your unique situation and that any agreement you reach meets the needs of your family. If any agreement cannot be reached, we represent you in all matters of child and spousal support held in the Domestic Relations Office or the courtroom.
Child and spousal support orders or agreements may need to be modified as the needs of your family change. Our lawyers can help you with post-decree modifications. Additionally, we can assist you with child and spousal support enforcement matters, either through the Domestic Relations Office or in court.
