At Jim Pino & Associates, P.C. in Pelham, Alabama, we possess both extensive experience in child support cases and a thorough knowledge of the law and child support guidelines. In addition, clients have relied on us when modifications to support orders are needed because of a change in circumstances.
Alabama uniform child support guidelines calculate the income of both parties in a divorce, the number of children, health insurance, and day care expenses. These guidelines apply to couples with a combined income of less than $10,000 per month. Anything over that amount is outside of those guidelines. If one of the parties assumes a great deal of the marital debt or lives a great distance from the other, a deviation from the guidelines may be appropriate. Joint physical custody also can alter the initial child support agreement.
When money matters become a part of a divorce agreement, relationships can be strained between the two parties. Custody is sometimes used as a bargaining chip, putting the children right in the middle of a child support dispute.
At Jim Pino & Associates, P.C., we assist clients with modifying child support agreements as well. Circumstances that may warrant a modification include:
Children with special needs have also factored into child support modifications.
