CHILD SUPPORT

The Family Law Attorneys at Clenney and Palmer LLC can help you with:

  • Establishing child support payments calculating support per Alabama guidelines

  • Amending, modifying, terminating current child support agreement/orders

  • Having support payer held in contempt of court, if failing to pay the court ordered amount

  • Imputing a certain income amount on a parent (if not currently employed)

  • Deviating from the Child Support Guidelines



If you are married with children and going through divorce, then Alabama's child support laws are going to effect you and your spouse. If you are not married to your child's mother or father, Alabama's child support laws will effect you also. Both parents, whether married or not, have a legal duty to provide financial support for their children of the relationship. Alabama has laws that determine the child support obligations and insure the children are getting financial support from the parents.


Alabama's child support laws, forms, credits and calculations can be complicated. It is in your best interest to contact the family lawyers at Clenney and Palmer LLC to help you. If you are the parent that will receive child support payments, you surely don't want to recieve less support than you are entitled to. On the other hand, if you are the parent who will have to pay child support, you surely don't want to overpay.


There are other child support obligations that may effect you besides the basic support payments. Issues like which parent pays health insurance, dental and vision insurance, school and college tuition/fees, daycare, extracurricular activities (sports, field trips, etc) also have to be taken into account with child support. 


Don't take Alabama child support issues lightly. If your child is an infant, you could have a legal obligation to pay child support until that child is 19 years of age or 23 years of age if attending college.


The Family Law Attorneys at Clenney and Palmer LLC are very experienced with Alabama's child support laws and can get you the best result possible.
