If you are going through a divorce or separation, the experienced Montgomery and Bucks County child support attorneys at Winter & Duffy Law, can help you navigate the financial concerns and fight for the level of child support you believe your child needs.
When it comes to discussing finances, it can be hard to reach an agreement between parties. If the parties fail to come to a settlement, it is up to the court to decide how much support money will be owed. A variety of factors will be considered when deciding the financial aspects of the case. When dealing with child support or alimony, you need a knowledgeable support lawyer by your side to negotiate the best result.
With child support in Montgomery and Bucks County, the intentions of the court are to minimize the impact of the divorce and/or separation on the child at hand. Child support will help the child live their life close to the way they had when their parents’ relationship was still intact. It is also intended to help the lower paid party to live a better quality of life so that the child can be ensured with the necessities in order to succeed. Many factors will be taken into account including both parents’ income levels and the amount of children that are being supported.
With alimony, it is a common misconception that alimony does not exist in Pennsylvania. As Pennsylvania is a marital property state, and it utilizes an "equitable distribution" procedure for dividing marital property, all property and finances are considered and alimony, support and alimony pendente lite are all options in the divorce process. There are many factors to consider in each case such as the length of marriage and difference in incomes and living standards.
