Chelmsford Child Support Lawyer
In any divorce involving children, it is important to ensure that children have the resources and support they need to thrive despite the changing conditions caused by their parent’s divorce. Whether you are a custodial or noncustodial parent, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of an accomplished family law attorney who can explain your rights. Increasingly, it is important to have an attorney on your side who knows how to find out the other parent’s true income even when it is less easy to find.
At the Law Office of Peter V. Lawlor, PC, in Chelmsford, we represent parents in Massachusetts and New Hampshire in child support cases, seeking to ensure that any child support arrangement reflects the financial realities of both parents and provides ample resources for the children.
Determining Child Support
Child support is calculated according to guidelines authorized by state statutes. Even though guidelines are in place, it is important to make sure that the income levels and other factors being considered by the courts are accurate and reflect the reality of the situation.
Our firm has considerable success in petitioning for and achieving deviation from the child support guidelines, both upward and downward. Deviation from the guidelines can be sought for any number of reasons by a parent, including his or her income and the medical or educational needs of his or her children.
Personalized Attention Tailored to Fit Your Needs
As a smaller firm, we are able to give our clients the one-on-one attention they need, along with full access to professional experts, legal databases and research tools that assist us in preparing strong cases on behalf of our clients.
