Child Support

If you’re a parent going through a divorce , single parent, or if the circumstances of your divorce or separation have changed, you need a child support lawyer in Greenville, S.C. An experienced child support attorney will help guide you through child custody and child support requirements to ensure you understand your rights and that your children are protected and secure.

Child support is generally paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent.

There are several factors that are considered when calculating child support, including the parties’ incomes, child-related health insurance expenses, and work-related daycare expenses.

In certain circumstances, the Court may deviate from the guidelines, but this is rare.
