We Help You Navigate The Child Support Process

Parents are required by law to support financially their children typically until the child turns 18. However, there may be instances where such support would continue even after the child turns 18.

The amount of support is determined by the Child Support Guidelines. The Guidelines are primarily based on a parent's income. The amount of time a parent cares for the child may affect the support payable. The Guidelines also consider other circumstances when determining child support, which is why it is critical to work with a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer who will protect your interests.

Experienced Legal Guidance

At Byron & Company, in Fort McMurray, we have extensive experience helping individuals reach agreement regarding child support. We represent parents who receive child support as well as parents who pay support. Most parents want to do what is right for their child, but it is important to have smart legal counsel at your side to ensure that the proper factors are considered and any special circumstances are addressed.

Child support may be required beyond age 18 if a child is unable to provide for himself or herself due to illness or disability, or if there are other reasons a child cannot withdraw from the charge of their parents.

Covering Additional Expenses

The amount of monthly child support may be increased to cover additional expenses, such as medical needs, tutoring, sports or other extracurricular activities. If a situation changes after support has been set that impacts the amount that should be paid, either parent may make a claim to modify an existing order. Examples of a change that may warrant a modification include a significant increase in salary for either parent or a child beginning post-secondary education.

We bring more than 30 years of cumulative legal experience to every case. We have successfully represented clients in divorces involving complex assets. Determining the proper amount of child support and spousal support in these cases requires a careful examination of extensive financial records, as well as a thorough understanding of what is being reviewed.
