Determinations in Virginia regarding child support focus on meeting the child’s medical, educational, physical and emotional needs. Unfortunately, single parents sometimes provide this support without knowing whether or not the other parent is required to provide financial assistance.
Our three lawyers at Van Hooser & Aguirre, P.C., have regularly represented both the custodial and noncustodial parent in child support and divorce cases in Prince William County. Their approaches differ for each child support matter because every child has different needs. As seasoned child support attorneys, they understand Virginia’s child support laws and guidelines that often impact decisions made by courts. They are always attentive to your needs.
Factors Considered In Child Support Matters
Before ordering a child support amount, courts will look at:
The gross income for each parent
Each child’s medical needs and expenses
The number of children each parent is responsible for raising
Child custody arrangements
Other considerations may factor in. The bottom line, however, is making certain both parents are doing what is needed in providing for the child and meeting the child’s best interests.
