An important issue that follows child custody is child support. The attorneys at Kublan Khan PLC will work with you to make sure that the court orders a fair payment amount. To determine child support, the court relies on child support guidelines established by the Virginia legislature. These guidelines take into account the relative and combined income of the parties, the number of children, and the time spent with the children. Your children are entitled to receive support until they reach the age of eighteen, although in certain cases this limit can be extended.
Our attorneys will also defend your rights if you are a noncustodial parent. Because child support must be fair and reasonable, we will fight to ensure that the child support ordered by the court is not more than you are able to pay. In addition, if you experience a change in circumstances, we can ask the court to modify the order of support to reflect your decreased earnings or increased need.
Whether you are seeking or providing financial support, we will work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure that you receive a support order that meets your needs.
