Child Support Proceedings in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania
Although child support in Virginia is typically set by a statutory formula known as the Virginia Child Support Guidelines, ensuring that you have accurate information to include in the formula is crucial. Does the other parent only work part-time? Are you or the other parent self-employed? Does your child have special medical or educational needs? Do you incur significant expense to exercise your visitation or provide visitation to the other party? Are there daycare expenses?
Each of these questions, depending on the answer, can make the statutory formula difficult to apply or cause a variation in the use of the child support guideline formula. Be sure you have an experienced attorney to help guide you through the maze of child support calculations. Our attorneys have over 10 years of experience in child support and custody disputes.
We are conveniently located across from the Spotsylvania County Courthouse. For an initial consultation, call the Fredericksburg child custody attorneys at Jarrell, Hicks & Waldman, PC, at 540-642-0489 or contact our lawyers by e-mail.
