Child & Spousal Support Attorney Klamath Falls
Child support is money one parent must pay to the other parent (or directly to the child if over 18 in some circumstances) for the care, support, education and welfare of the parties’ children. Child support is established by using the state’s Uniform Child Support Guidelines. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about how to provide for their children.
Spousal Support Attorney
Spousal support is money that a court orders a party to pay to a former spouse to help that spouse meet his or her needs. An award of spousal support is not based on a formula as is the case with child support; rather, it is based upon what is “just and equitable under the circumstances.” The amount and duration of spousal support is based on a variety of factors. Make sure that you get the support that you deserve.
Sometimes circumstances change: changes in employment, unexpected medical expenses, or if the needs of child change, each can be the basis for changing child or spousal support. If one of these changes occurs, contact Cole Chase, to see if a modification is right for you.
