How Is Child Support Determined in Maryland?

Child support is an important and necessary consideration that factors into the future of your children. Regardless of your marital status, your children have the right to expect financial support from both parents.

In the state of Maryland, the courts have adopted guidelines to assist in the determination of what is appropriate child support; the guidelines were recently revised effective October 1, 2010. Depending on the type of parental access, income levels, and many other factors, these guidelines may or may not be best suited in a particular case. For these reasons, the issue of child support may be more complex than it appears.

An experienced and skilled attorney can be of great help during negotiations or at trial in the event the matter cannot be resolved voluntarily. Contact me today to discuss your case.

A Dedicated Attorney Protecting Your Legal Rights in Child Support Issues

At the Law Office of Fred Allentoff, I help clients understand the complexities and nuances of the Maryland child support guidelines. Based on careful analysis of your current circumstances, I can inform you of what to expect in terms of paying or receiving child support. In addition, we will have the opportunity to discuss adding supplemental requests to your child support agreement such as contributions to your children's college funds. There are many areas, such as financial support for higher education, that our state cannot currently require as part of child support. However, as your attorney, I will ensure that you are aware of all options and possibilities for a comprehensive child support package.

If there is an agreement or court order pertaining to child support payments which you are not receiving, I can help you with enforcement and contempt actions in order to secure what is rightfully owed to your children.
