As any parent in Virginia can attest, raising a child can be a lot of work. Although it is a very rewarding part in life, it can also be a very costly one. Thus, when parents split, it is still imperative that the child’s financial needs are met. Unfortunately, this does not always naturally and willingly occur following a split or a divorce.
Seeking child support is common when parents are no longer together. However, it can be a complex and emotional process, especially if the parents are involved in a custody dispute. Because child support is often dependent on the custody and placement of the child, the two family law issues often go hand-in-hand.

Whether a parent seeks to establish support, enforce a current order or prove that it is necessary to modify an order, our law firm can help you understand your situation, your rights and available options.
