Child Support That Meets Your Children’s Needs
In Ohio, statutory guidelines determine child support levels. These guidelines are based on parents’ incomes, the residency time of the child, certain expenses and other factors. In most cases, we at Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law can quickly tell you what amount of support you can expect to receive or pay — and then go to court and obtain a child support order in an efficient manner.
Some child support matters can be complex and require more effort to resolve — for example, when a parent is self-employed or trying to hide income. We can represent you in these and other complex child support matters.
When a significant change occurs in income, custody arrangements or the needs of a child, we can go to court to obtain a support modification. In most cases, we can obtain a modification in child support quickly, efficiently and affordably.
Spousal Support That Meets Your Needs
Depending on your situation, spousal support (also called alimony) may not be required. Usually support is required following long-term marriages, when a spouse is disabled or when the court sees a need for one spouse to receive temporary support. Divorcing spouses are free to reach a settlement that includes support payments, but you should know that spousal support is taxable for the receiver and tax-deductible for the payer.
At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we have extensive experience dealing with all types of spousal support issues, including tax aspects. We can help you make the right decisions about spousal support and then work efficiently to achieve your goals.
