Knowledgeable Assistance With Spousal Support And Child Support

Spousal support and child support follow guidelines set forth by the state. At M. Rogers & Associates, our attorneys will determine if the guidelines have calculated your needs correctly. The amount of support you pay or receive matters, and we will work with the courts to obtain the best outcome possible for you and your children.

Our Child Support Attorneys Pay Attention To The Details

Child support and spousal support can come in varying amounts over different periods of time. The attorney you choose to represent you will have an immediate impact on the outcome of your case. At M. Rogers & Associates, we can help you with:

  • Spousal support: In spousal support cases, many different factors are taken into consideration. The length of the marriage and adultery play big roles in determining spousal support. If infidelity was present in the marriage, courts will bar spousal support, unless it is considered obviously unfair to strip these funds from your spouse. Spousal support can be negotiable if you are willing to work collaboratively alongside your attorney and your spouse.
  • Child support: When determining child support, the court considers the parents' income, day care expenses and the cost of medical insurance.
  • Modifications: In many cases, a modification to the original court order may be necessary. If you or your former spouse has moved, experienced a significant income change, incurred extraordinary medical expenses or experienced an involuntary change in employment, or if the cost of your child care increases, our attorneys can help petition the court for a change to your current child or spousal support order.

If you are a member of the military, there are several other factors that determine the amount of spousal and child support you could pay, including your retirement, your survivor benefit plan and your basic allowance for housing.

Our Virginia lawyers are determined to help restore peace and balance in your life. We understand that these issues may be foreign to you and may seem complicated, so we draw on our experience and our tenacity to obtain the best possible results for you and your children.
