Child Support Orders & Enforcement

While the love and care of a parent plays an integral role in the life of a child, financial support is also very important to his or her well-being and development.  If you and your spouse or significant other are no longer together, our team can help you ensure that your child will have the financial resources he or she needs to live a happy, healthy life.

In addition to assisting you with your child support matters, our Fayetteville child support attorney can help you enforce child support orders and agreements.

A Cumberland County Attorney Assisting You With Your Child Support Issues

Similar to other states, North Carolina has specific guidelines in establishing child support. In a child support case, the non-custodial parent is required to pay the custodial parent a certain amount of money, as governed by the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. Theses guidelines take into account several factors such as:

  • Wages of each parent
  • Child care costs
  • Insurance premiums
  • Extraordinary expenses incurred on behalf of the child

Because child support is determined by a child support formula, it can be difficult to deviate from the calculated amount without a substantial reason.  We understand that all families are different and the the guideline amount of child support may, in very limited situations, need to be adjusted to better suit your needs. Fayetteville child support lawyer Lila E. Washington and her staff are prepared to help advocate for your best interests.

In addition to initiating child support orders, our firm is also available to help parents in modifying previous orders, transferring child support orders from other states to North Carolina and terminating child support obligations.
