Sarasota Child Support Attorney

Along with dividing property and making child custody decisions, divorce often involves long-term financial arrangements. Whether you are trying to obtain child support or defend against such claims, an experienced lawyer can help you understand your rights and protect them.

At the office of H. Stephen Hillebrand, Attorney at Law, I am focused on helping our family law clients come to resolutions that protect their interests for the future. With more than 25 years of experience, I can help you bring your claim, defend against such claims or reach an appropriate child support or alimony agreement.

Supporting Your Children

Florida child support is usually determined according to the state's guidelines. I can help you apply the state's criteria to your situation and give you an honest assessment of what your support arrangement should look like. I am also here to help you ensure that all of the other party's financial circumstances and assets are considered in the formula, including varying business income, overtime payments and seasonal work.

If your child requires childcare, special care or medical insurance, these factors should also be considered. The court can deviate up to 5 percent or more from the guidelines based on our recommendations.

Sometimes life changes, and financial arrangements surrounding children, need to change as well. If your situation changes substantially, I am here to help you obtain a child support modification so your parental support obligations remain fair and sustainable. I also help parents enforce support orders to ensure that child support is paid or to collect back child support.
