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.
