Child Support Attorney in Alpharetta
How to Get Support for Your Child
When a marriage ends, financial responsibility for children does not. If you are going through a divorce you need the representation of an experienced Alpharetta lawyer to ensure that you do not end up with minimal support for your family, or, on the other hand, paying more than you are able to pay. At The Law Offices of Daniel W. Mitnick & Associates, P.C., we prefer to settle matters through mediation or in an uncontested divorce, but we are also skilled litigators, ready to go to court if needed. Our attorneys have 25 years of combined experience, and we have earned the respect of our peers and a reputation for success. Attorney Mitnick has been admitted to the bar in Georgia, U.S. District Court Northern District of Georgia, U.S. Court of Appeals 11th Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court. We are not afraid to aggressively pursue the best resolution of your case.
Who is Required to Pay Child Support?
Child support is typically awarded to the custodial parent, paid by the parent who does not have physical custody. The amount of child support is calculated on a pro-rata basis, after taking into consideration a number of factors, including:
- Monthly gross income
- Number of children involved
- Child care costs
- Cost of family health insurance
- Prior child support orders
- Any special medical or educational needs of the child
Working with The Law Offices of Daniel W. Mitnick & Associates
If handled properly, a child support order may not need to be modified in the future, which could save you time and legal fees. A dedicated Alpharetta attorney with our firm can help you with all aspects of your divorce, including child custody, child support, visitation, and property and asset division, or help you with modification of an existing decree. If your case cannot be settled through mediation, we will represent you in a court of law. Contact our team today for a complimentary telephone consultation!
