Child support was created to serve the financial interests of the child, not the parent. While it is true that child support is often determined according to a set of guidelines, a knowledgeable attorney will know how to use these guidelines in a way that best supports your child’s interests.
Planning for child support requires a thorough understanding of your budget. At Allred, Bacon, Halfhill & Young, PC, our attorneys will take a close look at your financial situation as it compares to your child’s needs. In many cases, certain elements of these guidelines do not apply to every family.
It is important to understand that these are simply guidelines, not hard and fast calculations. If this were the case, anyone could figure his or her child support without the help of a legal professional. In instances where both parents can agree, an agreement can be reached entirely outside of the child support guidelines.
We understand that our clients want what is best for their children and we will work diligently to create a child support agreement that reflects this. We will give you the information you need to make educated decisions about child custody.
In an effort to support the best interests of our clients, we offer competitive fees. Call 703-352-1300 or contact our firm to learn more about how our Fairfax child support lawyers will personally tailor our services to your needs.
