Child Support Attorneys St. Petersburg, FL

T he issue of child support is an emotionally charged and often contentious area within the scope of family law.  All parents are obligated to provide monetary support for their children.  Therefore, when parents divorce or split up, the Court may order the non-custodial parent—the parent with whom the child does not live the majority of the time—to pay a certain portion of his or her income as child support.  In order to ensure that your rights are protected choose a St. Petersburg attorney with years of experience in child support law.

A child support payment is a court-ordered amount that the non-custodial parent must pay to the custodial parent to cover a proportionate amount of the child’s expenses, including, but not limited to:

  • Housing
  • Utilities
  • Food

  • Clothing
  • Educational expenses
  • Other costs

The amount of these payments is often a subject of great dispute in divorce or paternity proceedings.  If you are dealing with a child support issue, contact us today.  At Barnett Woolums, P.A. we are experienced family law attorneys, dedicated to preserving our clients’ rights.
