Child Support Lawyer New York, NY

Child Support Lawyer New York, NY

Navigating child custody and support negotiations in a separation or divorce can get contentious fast. Regardless of whether you were married to your child’s other parent or not, the same New York laws covering possession, visitation, and support often apply, and a family law judge will act in the child’s best interest. As experienced New York, NY child support lawyers, we often see cases where one parent’s idea of the best interest of the child is quite different from the other parent’s. If you’re having trouble with child custody and support, whether you’re the primary custodial parent or the payer, an attorney from the Law Office of Daniel Clement, can help.

Why Do I Need A New York Child Support Lawyer?

You are not required to have a lawyer to negotiate child support and visitation with the child’s other parent, but if you’re divorcing or separated, an NYC family law judge will be the one to approve it or change it to reflect the best interest of the child. A child support lawyer can help you, as the custodial parent, get your fair allotment from your child’s other parent. They can also represent you in hearings if that parent isn’t paying child support on time, paying late, or not paying at all.

Or, perhaps you’re the paying parent. Our legal team helps you here, too. Maybe your financial situation has changed since the initial support orders were placed, and you need help adjusting the amount you pay each month. We’re on your side to help make sure that you can honor your obligations as a parent and still take care of your own expenses. Our goal is to help your family make the best life for your shared child.

Child Custody And Support – How Much Should You Get?

Child custody is arranged in the best interest of the child, with the goal of making sure each parent has plenty of access to the child to help parent them and develop relationships. Support is intended to help the primary custodial parent take care of all the child’s needs, from education to clothing, food, and extras, like sports and other enrichment activities. The amount that the custodial parent gets is governed by New York laws depending on the other parent’s income, although there are some expenses that you and the other parent could negotiate paying. Your attorney can help ensure that you and your child don’t suffer financially in a divorce.

Negotiating a child custody arrangement that works best for your family may be much easier with the help of a New York, NY, child support lawyer from the Law Office of Daniel Clement. We listen to your needs, evaluate your situation, and help you build a strong case for a NYC family law judge. Call us today – we’re on your side and ready to help you fight for your family.
