The amount of child support that you will pay, or receive, is often a source of great stress and anxiety. In most cases, this amount is governed by the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines and can be easily determined. However, there are insistences when the guidelines either do not apply, such as when a family’s combined monthly income exceeds $25,000, or cases where a child may have necessary expenses not addressed by the guidelines. In addition to the amount of monthly child support, our attorneys can negotiate the length of child support and how to pay for things that fall outside of a child’s routine monthly needs and expenses.
We have experience handling matters related to:
- Application of the NC Child Support Guidelines
- Deviation from the NC Child Support Guidelines
- The use of mediation to reach agreement
- The modification and enforcement of child support orders
