Warren Child Support Attorney

Establishing, Enforcing and Modifying Ohio Child Support Orders

Child support raises many questions: How will your child receive the amount of financial support he or she needs? Who will obtain health insurance for your child? How can each party contribute without breaking the bank? Will you be able to maintain the same kind of lifestyle you did before the divorce or break-up?

The law offices of Charles A. Ziegler can answer your questions and protect your right during child support negotiations and family court hearings. Contact Warren child support lawyer Charles A. Ziegler for a free consultation today.

Establishment and Enforcement of Child Support Orders

In Ohio, child support is determined through the Ohio Child Support Guidelines and is based on the gross income of both parents (your gross income is the amount of money you earn before taxes). We can help you determine the amount of child support that you will likely pay or receive. Based on your individual circumstances, you and the other parent may be able to negotiate a different amount.

Once child support is established, it is court-ordered. This means that any refusal to pay child support can lead to serious consequences. We help custodial/residential parents enforce child support orders as well as defend non-custodial/non-residential parents against child support contempt actions and arrearage claims.

Often, circumstances change and make a once reasonable child support order unreasonable. Once a judge has ordered child support or a separation agreement has been executed by the parties involved, a post-decree motion must be filed to bring an uneven situation back into balance.

The changed circumstance may be that one spouse has relocated to a different state or seen a substantial change in income, and the result is that the original terms of the divorce — including child support, child custody, and spousal support — become unfair. Charles A. Ziegler has extensive experience in all facets of divorce and family law and, if your case involves spousal or child support, he can help you understand your rights and decide on the appropriate course of action.
