Onslow County Child Support Attorneys
Child support is determined according to a statutory formula that is based on factors such as the income of each parent. Deviations can be made, but these arrangements are mostly standard. The key is to make sure all sources of income are declared and being considered so that the support arrangement is based on factual data that reflects the true situation of the parents.
For unmarried parents, we can assist with paternity actions so that child support and custody can be ordered.
