Trusted Virginia Attorneys Seek Fair Child Support Arrangements

Dedicated Charlottesville advocates negotiate and assert court orders

Child support payments can be crucial to creating a safe, nourishing and supportive home. The law firm of Tucker Griffin Barnes P.C. represents parents who want to give their children the best life they can. Whether you and your child’s other parent are going through a divorce or you were never married, help you seek a fair division of financial responsibilities. From our offices in Charlottesville, Palmyra and Harrisonburg, Virginia we build solid cases on behalf of clients involved in all types of child support disputes.

Hardworking attorneys help secure financial assistance for children

All parents have a responsibility to support their children until they reach the age of majority, which is 18 years old in Virginia. However, parents do not always have the ability to contribute equally. For this reason, either parent may seek a court order that requires payments from the other parent. To determine child support, Virginia courts consider such factors as the number of children, the gross income of each parent, the cost of family health insurance, the cost of daycare and required alimony payments. A parent who is not the child’s primary caretaker and who makes significantly more money than the custodial parent can expect to pay more in child support.

Providing an accurate depiction of the financial ability of each parent and the financial needs of children is essential to securing a fair child support calculation. Our attorneys conduct thorough investigations and utilize evidence to build strong cases.

Strategic lawyers work to revise existing child support orders

Child support orders can be modified if circumstances change to the point that the original order is no longer fair. You have the right to seek a revision to the terms of your arrangement if there are substantial alterations to either of the following:

  • Parental income — When one parent loses a job or gets a much better job, there may be a significant shift in the balance of each parent’s ability to pay. Receiving a large inheritance or another stream of income can also be a valid basis for modifying a child support order.
  • Child’s need — As children grow, their needs evolve. A custodial parent may incur added costs for the child’s clothing, food, education and other expenses. In these cases, the court may order increased payments.

Our record of accomplishment makes us a go-to law firm for parents facing difficulties with child support. We are adept at holding delinquent parents accountable for failure to make court-ordered payments.
