Indiana Child Support Modification Lawyer
The state of Indiana defers to specific child support guidelines when calculating the amount of child support that will be awarded or owed. There are several factors that go into this calculation, including:
- Amount of parenting time between custodial and noncustodial parents
- Income of both parties, including overtime pay and bonuses
- Health insurance costs
- Expected day care expenses
- Extracurricular activities for children
We share your desire to develop an agreement that is agreeable to both parties, while completely satisfying your child’s best interests. Whether you’re a custodial parent who feels as though the amount of support your child receives is too low, or a noncustodial parent who is finding it difficult to make the payments you are currently ordered to make, we will work to obtain resolutions.
Modifications of child support require court approval. You cannot change your agreement without telling the Court. Our attorneys always attempt to resolve this out of court which will save you money; however, C\court appearances are often necessary. When you come into our office to discuss your case, we encourage you to be prepared to compromise. Bring with you your proof of income, tax returns, pay stubs, etc. This information will assist our Fort Wayne child support lawyers as they try to resolve your legal matter as efficiently and effectively as possible.
