Financial Support For Your Child
In Minnesota, child support is determined by a quantitative formula and fixed criteria. When alimony is also involved, which is more qualitative in nature, it adds further complexity to divorce proceedings. An experienced divorce lawyer can advise and assist with your needs concerning child support.
I am John Daniels, a family law attorney with more than 35 years of legal experience serving clients in Minneapolis, Annandale, Wright County, Buffalo and across central Minnesota. I understand that matters concerning your children are of the utmost importance in your divorce or separation. When it comes to child support, I help clients separate from the emotional intensity of the problem in order to examine the numbers and make rational decisions.
I can also help with child support for children who have special needs that require additional expenses. If spousal maintenance is involved, I will take extra care in the coordination of both types of support.
Achieving Fair, Amicable Resolutions
Every child deserves care and financial support from both parents. All too often, however, child support arrangements are not honored by the paying spouse. In these situations, a strong legal advocate is needed to enforce current and back payments, as well as to ensure future support will be received.
As a dedicated child support attorney, support enforcement is part of what I do. I will make every effort to enforce the support payments that are due from the other parent.
If you are having trouble making scheduled payments, I can explain your options for a possible modification of an existing child support order.
