Child Support Attorney in Medina, Ohio

A Family Lawyer Who Cares

If you have a child support issue, experienced family law attorney Cameron Pedro can help you make sure the child support award is appropriate. A child, not a parent, has a fundamental right to receive child support. Child support is typically based on a state guideline or formula that factors in both parents’ incomes and the amount of time each parent spends with the child. This support covers costs for basic needs, medical care, childcare, educational expenses, transportation and travel, entertainment, and extracurricular activities.

Filing for Child Support

Attorney Cameron Pedro can help parents with child support issues, including establishing, enforcing, and changing child support payments. Once a child support amount is ordered, a parent must continue paying it unless and until a court issues another child support order changing the amount.

Child support modifications usually require a court hearing in front of a judge. Your attorney can help you prepare for the hearing, gather important evidence, and present your case to the court.

Calculating and Modifying Child Support

Ohio’s state child support guidelines help parents and judges figure out child support by plugging in each parent’s income numbers into a child support calculator. However, in some cases, the guideline child support amount isn’t appropriate. If you need to deviate from the guideline child support amount, Attorney Cameron Pedro can help you prove to a judge why you need to decrease or increase your child support award.
