Raising children alone can be expensive

Divorce can hit children hard. If the marriage was particularly difficult, the parents look forward to a better life ahead. However, the children are often gripped by a strong sense of insecurity. They may be unsure about which parent they will live with and which parent will financially support them. Hence, in the best interest of the child, Pennsylvania courts generally order one parent to take custody of the child and the other parent to pay child support.

The court understands that raising children is a very expensive proposition. However, raising a child without the support of the other parent can be extremely challenging. Child support attempts to ensure that all of the child's financial needs will be taken care of.

However, many parents are unsure about how to file for child support, and many other parents are not even aware that child support may be subject to change if there is a significant change in the circumstances of the supporting parent.

In all child support matters it is important to make sure that all of the pertinent information is in writing. At our law firm we understand that filing the paperwork for a child support order can be a lengthy process. Our attorneys work hard to protect our clients' rights.

Oftentimes there can be a significant change in circumstances for the non-custodial parent who is responsible for the child support payment. If that parent becomes unemployed or gets a promotion at work, income will probably change In that case, the child support amount may need to be adjusted accordingly.
