Delaware Child Support Lawyer
Aside from providing love and regular attention after a divorce or paternity case, parents have no higher obligation than to provide financially for their children. In Delaware child support is more important than any other debt or financial obligation, but most people do not know what level of support will be required. The New Castle County Delaware Family Court will determine the amount, and an experienced Delaware child support lawyer can help ensure that the determination is fair under the law. Child support is often the most predictable issue of a divorce case in Delaware. The amount of child support the non-residential parent pays is determined based upon the incomes of the parents — usually the more you make the more you pay. Another factor that influences the child support amount is the parenting plan or visitation schedule.
Divorce settlements: In addition to resolving difficult issues such as the division of property and child custody, we also must consider financial support to the custodial parent or former spouse. In most cases, child support will be ordered by the Family Court pursuant to Delaware statutes. Spousal support, on the other hand, may or may not be required at all and there is much more discretion in that type of award.
