Child custody and support are typically very emotional and tough topics during a divorce. It can be overwhelming and confusing, that’s why it is critical to have an experienced attorney’s guidance during this process. At Forrest Family Law, we want to make sure that your obligations during this process are fair and handled properly.
North Carolina Child Support Guidelines help determine child support obligations based on a number of factors such as the father’s income, the mother’s income, the cost of child care expenses and the cost of healthcare for the child. Courts will also consider other parental financial resources such as bonuses, inheritances, rental property income, investments, pensions, disability, social security, military/veteran benefits, unemployment benefits, and even financial support given to you by family and/or friends.
We are here to help you navigate these waters and fight to make sure you and your child’s interests are protected.
