Overland Park Lawyers Protecting Your Rights Regarding Child Support

Skilled Kansas family law attorneys strive for fair child support orders

Court orders for support are meant to impose fairness. But an order that doesn’t reflect your financial reality or your family’s needs is going to unfairly enrich one party to the detriment of the other. At The Henry Law Firm, P.A., with offices in Overland Park, we fight for fair child support orders designed to achieve the law’s intended purpose of granting you and your children the financial security you need. Our attorneys are experienced, caring and well-equipped to protect your future. We thoroughly explain the relevant Kansas law and implement strategies to achieve your goals in this litigation.

Fighting for fair support orders that protect your children’s best interests

Your concern for your children’s financial well-being can certainly increase your anxiety during or after divorce or separation. Our family law attorneys help parents:

  • Understand the Kansas Child Support Guidelines
  • Negotiate an effective and appropriate child support amount
  • Litigate child support issues when necessary
  • Enforce child support orders when necessary
  • Modify existing child support orders as material circumstances change

Kansas law has established general child support guidelines. Our attorneys can educate and advise you about the best possible financial arrangement within the framework of these guidelines. We help you structure the receipt or payment of child support so you can best secure your and your children’s financial future.

Achieving child support settlements through mediation or litigation

Through the structured process of private mediation, you and the other parent can put aside differences and focus on the one point about which you likely agree — your children’s well-being. Our skilled negotiators can help you create a support plan that equitably sets forth or modifies the financial obligations of rearing your children.

Sometimes trial is necessary for you to receive the financial support your children deserve. With our law firm, you have strong and experienced family law attorneys by your side who are prepared to stand up for your children’s right to a financially stable upbringing.

Enforcement and modification of child support in Kansas

Both parents share the responsibility of supporting their children. If the other parent fails to abide by legal obligations for your children’s financial support, we can induce the enforcement of your child support order through appropriate and established means. This can involve, among a number of available options, the garnishing of the other parent’s income.

Child support payments generally remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If one parent suffers an injury or illness or loses a job, fairness might dictate at least a temporary modification of the support amount. Our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments to accommodate your changing financial circumstances.

In addition, if three years have passed since the last child support order was approved by the court, or there has been an increase in a parent’s income, it may be in your best interest to discuss a review of the child support amount with one of our family law attorneys.
