NORMAN CHILD SUPPORT ATTORNEYS
Assisting with Child Support Calculations, Enforcement & Modifications
Children deserve the financial and emotional support of both parents after a divorce. The basic necessities of life plus education and health care expenses should be financed through collaboration between former spouses if at all possible — and divorced parents working together can ensure a child's overall positive upbringing.
For skilled legal assistance in determining the amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive after divorce — or if you want to pursue a modification of child support due to a recent change in circumstances — the Norman child support lawyers at Nichols Dixon can help. Our firm also offers assistance with paternity claims, custody modifications, child support enforcement, assertion of grandparents' rights, and a full range of other family law matters.
A Firm You Can Trust for Guidance on Oklahoma Child Support
Basic child support considerations to keep in mind include:
- Child support is typically paid by the noncustodial parent to a custodial parent and is awarded in child custody cases — regardless of whether a child's parents were ever married.
- In Oklahoma, a statewide child support calculator is in place to help ensure that required payments are fair and equitable.
- Child support payments are required on a monthly basis until the child reaches age 18 unless special schooling or medical needs become factors.
Modifying Child Support Orders
If a sudden, significant change in circumstances — caused by a job loss or promotion, job transfer, or health care emergency, for example — justifies a modification to a child support obligation, you should speak with a knowledgeable lawyer as soon as possible. The team at Nichols Dixon can help you petition for modifications to your existing child support order.
