Child Support Disputes

Contextual

Children are entitled to ongoing support regardless of whether their parents stay together. Virginia uses a set of child support guidelines to determine how much support should be awarded each month for the care of a child. Despite a clear set of rules governing how child support should be calculated, there are a number of ways that disputes can arise. Having a skilled lawyer on your side is critical to ensuring that your child is receiving the support that he or she deserves.

The family law attorneys at the law firm of Alex Levay in Leesburg are dedicated to standing up for those who need it most. We are compassionate advocates and skilled litigators representing individuals throughout northern Virginia.

Common Problems With Child Support Calculations

A child support calculation is only as good as the information that goes into it. Conflicts typically arise when income is disputed. This could be because:

  • Income is hidden
  • Income is inconsistent
  • A parent is intentionally unemployed or underemployed
  • A child has special needs and requires specialized care

Our firm has access to forensic accountants and other legal experts we can use to identify concealed income or to calculate an average monthly wage.

Modification of Child Support

To avoid having parents continually bring each other to court, there are rules governing the modification of support. We can walk you through Virginia's support modification guidelines.
