Child Support And Spousal Support (Alimony) Agreements
A divorce, dissolution of a marriage or cohabitation arrangement will often bring a change in your financial situation. The expenses once shared by you and your spouse or companion will be altered by reason of dual residences and changes in other basic living arrangements and the expenses arising therefrom. Caring for your child, however, will always be both parents’ responsibility. Goldschmidt & Genovese, LLP, can help you develop a resolution to meet the changes in your financial situation.
The court determines child support by making standard calculations outlined in the Child Support Standards Act. Simply following these guidelines can have limitations as some children or families require more flexible support structures that address special needs in health care, education or employment. Make sure to work with an attorney who can develop customized child support agreements.
Similarly, spousal support payments may need to be adjusted based on each party’s ability to support himself or herself. A primary wage earner may need to prevent finances from being spread too thin. A dependent spouse may need help collecting the support he or she is entitled to.
