Charlotte Child Support Lawyer

In most cases, the laws of North Carolina establish the noncustodial parent’s child support obligation by using a predetermined formula. This formula is known as the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. Our family attorneys will assist you in making the necessary computations as well as codify a method for payment and enforcement of the obligation.

North Carolina Child Support Modifications

An existing child support obligation is also subject to modification, due to certain occurrences that result in a change of circumstances of the parents and/or the needs of the children. Our attorneys will advise you whether an existing child support obligation is subject to a modification and, if so, the most efficient way of seeking that modification. It is important to understand that child custody and child support are only related in the sense that the custodial arrangement determines the calculation of the noncustodial parent’s child support obligation. However, the ability of the noncustodial parent to exercise his or her custodial rights is not based on whether or not that parent is paying child support.
