Murfreesboro Child Support Attorney
We Help Clients Throughout Tennessee!
Establishing a fair amount of child support is important for both parents.
The law requires parents to provide financial support for their offspring
until they reach the age of 18. However, in certain circumstances, courts
can extend or enforce a child support agreement well past the age of 18.
For example, an existing agreement can be extended in order to pay for
a child’s college or university tuition.
To determine the amount of child support that needs to be paid out, courts
generally look at:
- The Financial Situation of Each Parent
- The Needs of the Child
- A Parent's Responsibilities for Any Other Children
- Each Household’s Living Expenses
- The Amount of Time Each Parent Spends with the Child
Don’t let yourself be left with sole responsibility for your child’s
expenses, speak with our lawyer today to figure out your available legal
options. We are here to make sure that you are not taken advantage of
by your ex-spouse.
