Child Support

Caring North Carolina Family Law Attorneys Work to Resolve Child Support Issues

Dedicated lawyers advocate for your children’s financial well-being in the Durham area

You are not alone in your responsibility to pay for your child’s education, extracurricular activities, clothes, food, healthcare and other basic needs. A child is entitled to financial support from both parents, and neither parent should be made to take on more than their fair share of the costs following a divorce or breakup. The attorneys at Law Office of Cheri C. Patrick negotiate and work to uphold fair arrangements for the financial care of children. When our clients in North Carolina are involved in stressful child support battles, our priority is to achieve settlements and decisions that ensure your children are fully supported.

Experienced mediators seek fair child support agreements

When parents are respectful and cordial with one another, children can grow up feeling loved and supported. Through the structured process of mediation, parents are often able to put aside their differences and focus on a topic on which they tend to agree — the importance of their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Our skilled negotiators can guide the process toward equitable solutions that save clients time and money.

Committed attorneys help parents during family court appearances

Sometimes, litigation is the only way to obtain the financial support your child deserves. Our attorneys are strong advocates in family court.

Child support orders remain in effect unless the court modifies the original order. If your child’s other parent fails to make court-ordered payments, Law Office of Cheri C. Patrick can ask the court to compel the enforcement of the support order. When one parent suffers an injury or loses a job, fairness might dictate at least a temporary shift of financial burden to the other parent. Our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments to accommodate your changing financial circumstances.
