Child Support Lawyers In PA

Child Support in Pennsylvania

Child support varies from state to state. In Pennsylvania, child support is based upon an “Income Shares” model. What this means is that child support is generally calculated based upon the incomes of the two parents; however, many variables affect the calculation of support. Some of those variables include: the earnings or earning capacities of the parties; the cost of health insurance for the children; the cost of daycare or childcare services for the children; unreimbursed medical expenses; the tax filing status of the parents and the amount of time each parent spends with the child or children.

The Impact of Professional Legal Representation in Child Custody & Support Matters

Child support and child custody matters can get complicated quickly. An experienced child support lawyer steps in to help mediate and facilitate the situation. This intervention can help reach a quick and fair resolution.
