Importance Of Hiring A Child Support Attorney

Parents are obligated by the law to fully support their children even if they have never been married or have divorced. In cases where parents are not living together, the law provides that one parent has to pay child support. Traditionally, men have been known to pay child support but courts have recognized that giving custody to fathers also may be in the child’s best interest. Courts acknowledge that the opinion of the child also counts in determining whether to grant custody to a father. In such cases it is increasingly common to find women paying to men child support given that more and more women have joined the workforce.
