Proven Attorneys For Child Support And Enforcement
Florida law states clearly that both parents are required to contribute financially to the upbringing of their children. Unfortunately, it is not always this simple in practice. The combination of financial and parenting implications of child support often leads to emotional exchanges and disagreement between parents.
At Arriete Law, P.A., we understand that child support often becomes a difficult issue for parents who are divorced or unmarried. We can help you sort through these issues and arrive at a solution that upholds the law and provides your children with the resources they need to thrive.
How Is Child Support Determined?
The courts look at a number of factors when determining who is responsible for paying child support and how much they should pay, including:
- Each parent’s income
- Child care expenses
- The amount of time the child spends with each parent
- Medical or educational expenses of the child
We have been representing mothers and fathers in child support cases in Miami for more than 10 years. We have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure that child support is calculated accurately, including engaging in forensic accounting and other measures to uncover hidden assets and thwart attempts to game the system.
Child Support Enforcement
You have enough on your plate as a parent. The last thing you need is to be responsible for enforcing child support orders. If your child’s other parent is failing to consistently pay court-ordered child support, we can petition the court on your behalf and fight to get you the money you are owed. A successful petition can result in the court taking the following actions to recover the funds your child deserves:
- Garnishing wages
- Placing a lien on a home or another property
- Placing levies on bank accounts and retirement accounts
