Even the most amicable of separations can affect a child for the rest of their lives. While custody and visitation rights are decided according to the best interests of the child, child support is determined by the Maryland Child Support Guidelines. The state’s formulaic guidelines are followed unless a deviation is necessary to prevent an unjust or inappropriate result.
Unless you have solid legal representation, you could end up paying more or receiving less than you should. While both parents have a legal duty to support a child based on their relative ability to pay, you may find yourself being asked to pay more than you can manage, or the other parent paying less than he or she is able, due to the court having insufficient information. You need a child support lawyer that understands this process and knows how to hold the other party accountable.
YOUR OBLIGATIONS AS A PARENT
After a full accounting of both parents’ finances and an evaluation of the needs of the child, the court will decide on a reasonable amount of support. That amount can include health insurance coverage, day care costs, and other expenses.
A failure to pay child support as ordered by the court could lead to potential wage garnishment. Non-payment could even result in a suspended license, which could further restrict your ability to care for your kids and make future child support payments.
You can petition the court for a child support modification if you believe you have experienced a material change in circumstances. We are ready to review your case to establish whether or not you may qualify for a modification of child support.
