Professional And Experience Child Support Attorneys

When parents separate, both parents must contribute to the well-being of their child. This child maintenance most often takes the form of child support payments from the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent. While child support agreements may seem straightforward, the unique circumstances of a case can sometimes lead to complex problems.

At The Law Office of Robert R. Castro, our child support lawyers fight to get clients fair agreements. We have years of experience on both sides of family law cases and a thorough understanding of effective courtroom strategies. Our Waldorf law firm represents clients throughout Maryland, including people in Charles, Prince George's and St. Mary's counties.

How Do The Courts Determine Child Support?

The courts use a variety of factors and guidelines when calculating the child support payments total. We work to find a fair balance of what our clients can afford and the best needs of a child.

Here are a few of the factors the courts use when determining the child support payment amount:

  • Both parents income and the number of children
  • The cost of health insurance and extraordinary medical expenses
  • Child support payments for other children and alimony payments
  • The cost of day care and other expenses

While the family courts generally use a calculator to determine child support payments, some unique circumstances can lead to different payments. Our attorneys can check case details and give you a realistic assessment of your expected payment.

Guidance For Child Support Enforcement And Modifications

If you are not receiving the full amount of your child support payments, then you may need to work with a government agency to enforce your agreement. Our lawyers can help you coordinate with government agencies and represent your best interests. If we win your case, you may also get full coverage for your legal fees in addition to the child support payment.

If you have a change in your income or lose your job you may be able to make changes to a child support agreement. Our lawyers can guide you through the modification process and represent your interests in hearings.
