Child Support for Your Children’s Best Interests
In the state of Ohio, there are some key statutory laws designed to establish the levels of child support. The way that these guidelines are determined are based on a number of crucial factors.
Some of the most key components in establishing the amount of child support you could get include:
- The financial amount of you and your former partner’s incomes
- The amount of time your child resides with you
- The number of expenses incurred for basic living needs
- The abundance of your child’s additional needs for healthcare, education, medical bills, disability, and more
- Any crucial emergencies which have suddenly occurred that would inhibit you from caring for your child or offering support to your former spouse for childcare
Depending on your individual situation, there might be some challenging complexities that require extra scrutiny to resolve (such as one parent trying to hide their actual income, or another parent involved in illegal activity). Our experienced lawyers can help counsel you of the best plan of action in these complicated situations.
Spousal Support that Meets Your Individual Needs
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is not usually given to either spouse except under extreme circumstances. The usual scenarios where alimony is awarded might include situations where one partner is disabled, encounters an unexpected and debilitating emergency, or is inhibited by age or background from earning an income. In these scenarios, a spouse who is divorced from their spouse may be able to gain alimony, either temporarily or permanently.
Alternatively, a spouse who has been giving alimony might also encounter sudden extreme scenarios that prevent them from continuing spousal support. No matter the situation, you will need our knowledgeable spousal support and child support attorneys in Columbus to offer their dedicated counsel.
