Advocating For You During Child Support Disputes

Unlike alimony, which is not automatically awarded during divorce, parents are required to pay child support in Florida. Judges use guidelines as a baseline to determine monthly obligations, but they will take certain factors into account when calculating payments.

Working with a knowledgeable attorney can ensure that your child support arrangement is fair. At the office of H. Stephen Hillebrand, Attorney at Law, I am focused on helping my clients come to resolutions that protect their financial interests for the future. With over three decades of legal experience, I can help you bring your claim, defend against such claims or reach an appropriate child support agreement.

Developing A Strategy To Ensure Your Children Are Supported

The court can deviate up to five percent or more from the guidelines based on a lawyer's recommendations. When you retain my services, I will study your income and financial responsibilities, including child care, special care or medical insurance. I am also able to evaluate your estranged spouse's assets and liabilities, so that I can identify fair terms for your arrangement.

Sometimes life changes, and financial arrangements surrounding children need to change as well. If your circumstances 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.
