Kansas City Child Support Lawyer

 

Every child, whether born inside or outside the bounds of marriage, has a right to be cared for by its parents. This right is recognized by the state of Missouri through child support requirements.

As a longtime Kansas City child support attorney, I have the experience you need to protect your interests. If you are a seeking a modification, want reassurance that your support payments have been adequately calculated, or need assistance taking action against your former partner, I am well prepared to advocate on your behalf.

Child Support Guidelines

According to state law, a parent must pay child support regardless of visitation and custody arrangements. The payment amount is determined according to specific formulas that take into account various factors such as income, day care costs and credit for overnight custody. At my law firm, I use the latest software technology to assist you with child support calculations based upon diverse potential scenarios.

If your former spouse or partner is not paying child support, you or the state of Missouri may initiate an action against the noncompliant parent. However, noncustodial moms and dads should be aware that support payments must begin as soon as the child is removed from your care. You are liable for payment from the time your divorce was filed. Do not wait to send a check. Child support matters can become contentious very quickly.

Should you be unable to pay your mandated monthly child support, I can assist you in requesting a modification. If you are being prosecuted, I will represent you at a hearing. Regardless of your reasons for neglecting payment, help is available at my office.
