Working With You To Achieve A Fair Child Support Settlement
The court’s first priority is the health, safety and well-being of your child. When it comes to child support, this can create a fine line. Yes, your child needs financial support from their parents, but the court also needs to balance the financial needs of the parents.
Our firm focuses on helping you navigate the complicated intersection of family obligation and personal need. We break down the factors at play in your case so that you understand your ability to negotiate. Our attorneys are available to review your case in-depth with you so that you have a foundation for success.
Real Support Starts Before Payments Begin
Child support agreements are among the most emotional for many people because the topic brings up emotions about your children, your past relationship and your future. At The Shapiro Law Firm in Plano, we keep you grounded and help you understand the factors at play.
From the beginning of your case, we explain how factors influence your agreement, such as:
- Primary physical custody and visitation
- Your child’s physical needs, including housing, food and medical care
- Both parents’ employment situations and income
When your child support order no longer reflects your circumstances, we also help modify agreements so that you have a renewed sense of balance in your life.
