Oregon Child Support Lawyers
In most cases involving minor children, the law requires that one or both parties pay to support those children. Normally the parent with less time with the children will pay child support to the other parent. The amount of child support is based on a formula in an online calculator, which considers each party’s gross income, parenting time, cost of health care for the children, cost of childcare, and union dues paid by each parent. The amount generated by the online calculator is presumed to be the correct amount of child support. However, certain rebuttal factors may apply in your case, which can result in an increase or decrease of child support.
What To Expect In An Oregon Child Support Consultation
As a service to clients, we meet with all potential clients in person, preferably with two attorneys, for the first consultation. This allows us to determine which lawyer is best-suited for any given case, based on the subject matter and the client’s personality. In addition to the client getting two-for-the-price-of-one, this allows both lawyers to meet potential clients and hear the background of each case. Although ultimately only one lawyer will handle the case, the other will then know the basics of each case and can answer questions when a client calls. We offer this initial consultation for a flat-fee of $100.00.
When starting the process for finding a lawyer, potential clients often ask “who is the best lawyer in Oregon for child support issues” or the “who is the best child support lawyer in Portland?” The answer is: the lawyer who gets the results you need. Like the rest of family law, there is not one-size-fits-all when it comes to selecting a family law attorney. The best attorney for you is the one who listens to your circumstances, provides solid legal advice, and facilitates and achieves your goals.
