Child Support And Spousal Support

Child support and spousal support disputes can be emotional and difficult, whether part of a divorce or as a separate action. An experienced lawyer can help to guide you through the legal process and achieve a workable solution that protects your interests.

Spousal Support Law Firm

Generally, spousal support is based on the needs of the payee and the means of the payor. However, courts frequently adjust the amount of spousal support based on a range of factors from the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines. This includes factors such as:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Debts
  • Medical needs and illnesses

The law changes frequently in this area, and it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the nuances in spousal support law and the impact of these legal changes. Our legal team leverages new case law and changes to the law so we can help our clients achieve a successful settlement.

Experienced Child Support Lawyers

Child support is based on set federal guidelines, which act as a formula. The formula compares the income of the custodial and noncustodial parents. Courts can in rare cases vary from the formula, such as when the child has a special need.

At The Ross Firm, we represent clients seeking support and those who are contesting support. When appropriate, we work with financial professionals and industry experts in order to properly calculate support for our clients' children.
