Child Support


It takes two to create a child, and both you and your ex-spouse are responsible for each child's financial well-being.  To calculate the financial obligation of each spouse, the court will consider the incomes and expenses of each parent and all child-related expenses, including but not limited to food, health care, clothing, education, day care, and extracurricular activities.  The parent with whom the child/children spends the most time may be awarded a higher amount that takes into consideration other expenses, such as transportation and time away from their job to care for sick children.  Adam Schneider can help make sure that your ex is paying their fair share.
In both alimony and child support negotiations, either spouse may try to falsify income/expenses.  One way to detect lies is to see whether the spouse's declared income matches their living style.  If they are living above their stated means, for example, driving a car you don't think they can afford, they may have hidden assets during the divorce proceedings.  There are more ways to hide and move money than can be imagined, and the advent of the internet has made this kind of deceit even easier.  The spouse receiving support can also overstate costs to get a larger settlement. If you suspect your ex-spouse has not been honest about their finances, Adam can start an investigation and forensic audit, and get your support decision modified.
If the spouse paying support does not comply with the court-ordered support payments, they can be sent to jail or their wages can be garnished.
