Child Support

Child support is designed to support the financial needs of your children. While Connecticut operates according to a mandatory set of child support guidelines, there are a number of factors that may justify a deviation.

The deviations can increase or decrease the amount of child support that is paid or received, and an experienced attorney can help you determine what your unique situation requires. From my Stamford office, I offer my clients more than 40 years of family law experience and knowledge.

Fairfield County Child Support Payment Lawyer

Through constructive negotiations and determining the needs of your children, I can develop a resolution that serves the needs of your children. I am committed to supporting your financial security through either a negotiated settlement or litigation, and I will help you understand your rights and responsibilities regarding child support. In addition to the base order of child support, there are many other financial issues that arise in raising children, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Child care expenses
  • Sports
  • Lessons
  • Tutoring
  • Extracurricular activities
  • College
  • Special needs

These, among many others, are some of the additional expenses that should and need to be considered when fashioning a reasonable order regarding the support of children after divorce. If your child has special needs, drafting a child support order may prove to be more complicated. I am prepared to help you creatively form plans that are specifically suited to the needs of your child.
