Top-Rated, Personalized Service in Miami
There are a number of issues to consider when you are filing for divorce. One of your main concerns is likely how the divorce will affect your children and how you will be able to provide for them after your union has ended. Divorce can be very traumatic for children, especially if they are young or unable to understand exactly what is happening. If you are divorcing, you may need legal representation to help you establish an adequate child support order. At The Law Office of Ada M. Barreto, P.A., our divorce lawyer in Miami can help you understand the legal process.
When making a decision regarding child support, the court typically considers:
There is no way to predict the exact decision that the court will make or the exact amount of child support you will win. Our job is to help build a strong case on your behalf. Child support cases can be quite vague and complex, causing a number of concerns and anxiety for our clients, which is why we aim to offer you a sense of relief. We can assist with all matters relating to child support, including establishment, modification, and enforcement.
No - You should never refuse visitation if a parent has not paid child support. This is because under the law, visitation and child support are two separate things. If you willfully deny the other parent visitation, you are violating your timesharing order. The consequences of a violation can be punishable by community service, having your plan modified in favor of the other parent, or other punishments as determined by the judge. If a parent is not paying child support, you should talk to an attorney first before taking any action.
