Child Support


Huntsville Child support Attorneys

At the Law Offices of Ferguson & Ferguson, we pride ourselves in assisting both men and women in negotiating child support agreements during divorce proceedings, litigating initial orders, as well as establishing support in paternity actions.

Both parents have an obligation to contribute toward the support of their minor child(ren). Generally, child support is paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent because it is assumed that the custodial parent is already contributing considerable resources to the support of the child(ren). The custodial parent is the parent with whom the child resides the majority of the time. However, even when the parents have joint physical custody and the child resides an equal amount of time with each parent, the parent with the lower income may still be entitled to support. Contacting a child support lawyer is important for the proceedings to make sure that all bases are covered and everything that needs to be sorted, is. The child’s welfare is of the highest priority throughout any case.

Child Support Enforcement

Courts usually enforce child support orders and frequently hold nonpaying parents in contempt for failure to pay. Whether you are a parent seeking child support or one defending against a support case, you need an experienced attorney on your side.

Child Support Modification

In many situations, you or your ex-spouses financial condition may change by no fault of your own. Things happen where you are making more money, less money, or no money at all. Is your child entitled to more child support? Are you entitled to a reduction in the amount of your monthly child support you pay? The domestic law attorneys at Ferguson & Ferguson can help you when you or your ex-spouse’s financial condition has changed.
