Concerned Family Law Attorney in Pennsylvania Resolves Child Support Disputes

Skilled Philadelphia lawyer dedicated to your children’s well-being

During divorce, your concern for your children’s financial well-being can increase the anxiety of an already painful experience. The Law Office of David J. Averett, P.C. can help you protect your children’s financial future as you divide your family into two households. Drawing on more than 26 years of experience, I help parents:

  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Negotiate child support through mediation
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Enforce child support orders
  • Modify child support orders

Sometimes trial is necessary for you to receive the financial support your children deserve. With my firm, you have by your side strong litigators who are prepared to stand up for your children’s right to a financially stable upbringing.

Working with state child support guidelines

Pennsylvania law has established general child support guidelines. I strive to achieve the best possible financial solutions within the framework of these guidelines. That begins with using the discovery process to compel a full, truthful financial disclosure, so the court can calculate basic child support with accurate data. Affluent couples must often deal with issues beyond basic child support, such as payments for private school tuition, sports and enrichment activities. I work to achieve results that do justice to your children within your own financial reality.

Achieving child support settlements through mediation

Through the structured process of mediation, you and your spouse can put aside your differences and focus on the one point about which you likely agree — your children’s well-being. I can help you create a support plan that equitably divides the financial obligations of raising your children.

Enforcement of child support

Both parents share the responsibility of raising your children. If your former spouse fails to abide by legal obligations for your children’s financial support, I can petition the court to enforce your child support order.

Post-divorce modification of child support

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If one parent suffers an injury or loses a job, fairness might dictate at least a temporary shift of financial burden to the other parent. I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments to accommodate your changing financial circumstances.
