When two people get divorced and children are involved, the next step is deciding on who will get custody of the children. Once that is decided, the non-custodial parent is required to make child support payments to the parent that does have custody. Child support payments are meant to help provide the children with all the necessities he or she will need. It is a tricky and complicated area of law, but our lawyers are here to assist you in your time of need.

Necessities that child support payments may provide for include:
The amount of child support that a Maryland parent is entitled to depends on a number of different factors. The number of children involved is one major factor, along with how much money each parent makes. Our knowledgeable lawyers can help you by discussing your personal case with you and determining how much child support the custodial parent will be entitled based on all the facts.
Contacting our lawyers during the divorce process is a wise decision for many reasons. For example, your spouse may refuse to give you the amount you requested and you feel you deserve a larger amount, or your spouse may refuse to pay anything at all. Even if your spouse is agreeing to the child support amount you requested, it is possible you may be entitled to more. Or, perhaps you are on the other end and your spouse is requesting far too much and you feel it is unfair, and he or she is already working with lawyers and you do not want to be at a disadvantage. Whatever the case may be, the lawyers at Goldberg, Finnegan, & Mester can fight for an outcome that ends in your favor.
