Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of a spousal support or child support order, your rights deserve to be protected and enforced. When disagreements arise that can’t be resolved privately, it helps to work with an experienced attorney who knows how to fight for those rights.
At JacksonWhite Law, our family law attorneys have over 40 years of combined experience fighting for issues over child support and spousal support. From negotiating new agreements to appealing existing orders and taking aggressive actions to collect payments in arrears, we know how to get our clients the results that they need and deserve.
Child Support Services in Mesa
Under Arizona law, parents have an obligation to provide for their child’s needs. When the parents are divorced, separated, or simply no longer in a relationship, the law requires a custody and child support plan to ensure that the child is properly cared for.
Calculating child support is fairly complex, taking into account a variety of factors including who has custody, each parent’s financial situation, the child’s needs, and more. It’s a delicate balancing act between providing maximum support for the child and avoiding undue financial burden on the parents, though the court will always put the needs of the child first.
In addition to helping parents negotiate a child support agreement, the family law team at JacksonWhite Law is able to provide the following services:
- Pursuing legal action when child support payments aren’t being made
- Working with the other party to collect unpaid child support
- Altering child support orders when financial situations have changed
If you need legal assistance with your child support order, call the Family Law Team at (480) 467-4348 to discuss your case today.
Mesa Spousal Support Services
Spousal support — sometimes called spousal maintenance or alimony — refers to court-ordered payments between separated or divorced spouses. The idea behind these payments is to ensure that both parties leave the marriage on relatively equal ground, and avoid any unfair economic consequences of divorce or legal separation.
In Arizona, spousal support payments are determined by the guidelines established in ARS 25-319. When merited, they must be included in the official divorce or legal separation agreement in order to be enforced.
As with child support, calculating spousal support payments is an incredibly complex process that requires the help of a legal professional. In fact, the first discussion that you’ll need to have with your attorney shouldn’t be over how much alimony you can get, but whether or not you actually qualify for it, as spousal support is never guaranteed.
At JacksonWhite Law, our seasoned family law team has a wealth of experience assisting clients with every aspect of spousal support, including:
- Negotiating new spousal support agreements
- Amending existing spousal support agreements
- Enforcing a spousal support order
- Collecting spousal support arrears
- Terminating spousal support
