Latrobe Child Support Attorneys
When your children are at issue, providing for them is undoubtedly at the forefront of your mind. If you have primary custody of your children, you may be dependent on support from the other parent in order to provide for your children. If you are entitled to support, it is also critical that you do not delay in filing for support, as you cannot obtain back support prior to the date of filing. In other words, if you have custody of your children beginning in May, but do not file for child support until October, you will not likely lose the right to recover support for the months of May through October forever.
On the other hand, if you are a parent paying support, paying too much may leave you penniless to provide for your children during your periods of custody with them. Certain expenses should be deducted from your income when calculating how much of your income is subject to support. Making certain that these items are not overlooked can be critical to limiting your support obligation to a reasonable level. If this is not done, you may lose significant financial resources that could otherwise have been utilized to protect your interests in your divorce or custody case.
In either event, it is critical that support be set at a reasonable level under the law. The rules for establishing the amount of support that you have to pay can be complicated and you should not venture into this foray without competent legal counsel who is familiar with this area of law.
