Child Support Missoula, MT
Raising a child can be the most rewarding experience of your life, but without adequate financial resources, it can be incredibly stressful and challenging. That’s why child support agreements between parents are so important. At the Judnich Law Office, our family law attorneys are here to help with matters regarding child support in Montana.
Child support agreements play the important role of requiring each parent to make fair financial contributions. They serve as a legally binding contract that can be used for protection in the event that one parent does not meet his or her obligations under the terms of the agreement.
We can be your partner in the fight for your rights and the rights of your children. Keep reading to learn about how we approach child support, or contact us to schedule a consultation today.
Child Support in Montana
Creating Child Support Agreements
Child support is guided by calculations that are set by state law. Usually, child support agreements are determined as part of the divorce process. We can help you understand how child support payments are calculated in Montana, and how much child support you can expect to receive or pay.
When we calculate child support, we follow guidelines that may include:
- Conduct interviews with the child and parent
- Review financial affidavits
- Hire a private investigator to ensure all information is accurate
- Use state-of-the-art computer software to assist with calculations compliant with state law
As you can see, creating child support agreements takes a lot of time, effort, and expertise. Going through this process can be especially difficult due to the stress and uncertainty you may be experiencing.
We’re here to help. At Judnich Law Office, we always have your best interests -- and the best interests of your children -- at top of mind as we represent you throughout the legal process. Our goal is to help create a fair child support agreement for you and your family.
Recovering Back Child Support Payments
If you’re not receiving child support payments, your rights -- and the rights of your children -- are being violated. If the other party in your child support agreement has fallen behind on payments, we can help you recover the payments due to you and your child.
We will start by reviewing the child support agreement in place as well as your receipts and payment records. Our family lawyers will work with you to explain and evaluate your best options for recovering missed child support payments.
When it comes to child support, nothing is more important that ensuring your children have the financial resources they need to thrive.
