Child Support

child-support-lawyer-raleigh-littlejohn-lawChild support is designed to allow your children to live in similar living environments with both parents, regardless of income levels.

If you have already completed your divorce, but you now need a child support modification, I can help. If you have recently lost your job through no fault of your own, or you learned that your former spouse has a more lucrative position, a child support modification may need to be filed.

Child support is determined using formulas that are sometimes difficult to understand. Each parent is obligated to provide some level of support, but this is determined by your income and by the amount of time you spend caring for the children. Even when you split custody and care right down the middle, the parent that makes more money may be obligated to pay the parent with a lower income child support.
