Child Support

Child support can be a stressful and contentious topic for parents. You might be recently separated and need money to support your child. Or you're trying to enforce a child support order against a parent who refuses to pay.

Do you disagree with the way that your co-parent is spending child support? Are their actions legal?

How do you start the process of modifying a child support order?

Do you have to pay support until they finish high school? What if the child is emancipated or self-supporting?
