We can help you seek modifications to your child support order

Recent posts on this Miami divorce law blog have discussed a variety of topics related to child support. From exploring how income is established for the purposes of computing child support to evaluating the factors a court may consider when determining the amount of a child support award, it become clear quite quickly that child support can be a economically significant commitment. Though child support is generally awarded so that a parent maintains financial responsibility for his kid it can also become a heavy burden for a parent whose circumstances change.

For example, a parent may have a good job at the time that the award of child support is made. The amount of child support that he is required to provide may be based in large part on the income he earns from his employment. If he loses his job, his child support obligation does not automatically disappear or reduce; parents who lose their jobs or who must take demotions often struggle to keep up with their child support payments due to their losses in income.

The Law Office of David B. Mitchell is available to help individuals who are experiencing this economic hardship. Parents who must seek modifications to their child support orders are not bad people but rather individuals who need to have their financial challenges recognized so that they may continue to support their kids. Modifications to child support orders can be achieved through the Florida courts and David B. Mitchell includes this service as part of his comprehensive divorce law practice.

When a parent stops paying child support he can face punishments for his deficiencies. Many parents who fall behind on their obligations do not intend to do so but rather are stuck in a financially difficult place. To learn more about how parents can continue to support the best interests of their children through child support modifications, readers are invited to contact the Law Firm of David B. Mitchell.
