Hallandale Beach Child Support Attorney
Parents are obligated to provide financial assistance for their minor children. Both mothers and fathers are expected to contribute to the everyday needs of their children, from the basics of food, shelter and clothing to the costs of health insurance and other factors.
At The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin, I help clients throughout Broward and Miami-Dade counties establish and maintain appropriate child support agreements. With a practice 100% devoted to family law, I am knowledgeable of the options available and seek to protect the best interests of your child.
Board-Certified Family Lawyer In Miami-Dade And Broward Counties
While many lawyers may handle marital and family law matters at various levels, only those who have met the requirements of board certification are allowed to identify themselves as a “specialist”. Certification is the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar of the competency and experience of attorneys in the areas of law approved for certification by the state Supreme Court.
Calculation Of Child Support
I have extensive experience in the area of child support. Board-certified in marital and family law since 1993, I am prepared to do everything legally and ethically possible to protect the welfare of your child. Florida has specific guidelines that the courts are expected to follow. However, under certain circumstances, the court may vary from the guidelines.
Child Support Modifications
I am experienced in helping clients with child support modifications that maintain a child’s best interests. A modification can occur when there has been a substantial change in circumstances of either parent. Mothers or fathers may petition for a modification due to changes in areas such as income, child’s needs, health insurance or child care needs.
Child Support Enforcement
Child support enforcement matters may arise under a variety of circumstances, including when one parent is not paying the mandated support amount. As your legal counsel, I will petition the court of enforcement and attend all related hearings.
Modifications Of Child Support Lawyer
In almost every divorce or paternity case, it is inevitable that circumstances will change, meriting a modification. One of the most common modifications is a child support modification to a prior court order or settlement agreement. If you are seeking a child support modification or are contesting a modification, it is imperative that your attorney not only knows how to handle these post-divorce issues but has extensive experience with them.
I am a family law attorney with more than 35 years of experience. As a board-certified family law specialist, I help clients with issues before, during and after a divorce or paternity settlement. If you find that your financial situation has drastically changed or that your child is not getting his or her child support needs met, I can help deliver a legal solution that will resolve your legal problems. I am also highly skilled in cases that involve the Department of Revenue and litigate those cases constantly.
Modifications For Child Support
Anyone who is seeking a child support modification needs to know that you should not handle this on your own. Child support matters can be quite complicated, and any deviations from an existing court-ordered agreement without court approval could be considered contempt of court. That is why you should reach out to me to have me represent you.
There can be a number of reasons why you may be seeking a child support modification. But in general, the standard the court will use to review your request is whether there has been a substantial change in circumstances. And of course, if the change is substantial does it still keep in mind the best interests of the child at hand. I can help make the case as per your request that meets these standards. Whether you lost your job, your income changed, you remarried, your time sharing or your health insurance has changed dramatically, I can help you by petitioning the court.
If you are contesting a modification your former spouse is requesting, I can also help you argue against such a change. Every case is different so it is very critical that you consult with me on an individual basis. You need an attorney to handle this specialized matter.
