Experienced Counsel in Lackawanna County Child Support Proceedings
Child support is a specific amount of money paid by a parent to help with food, clothing, shelter, and other expenses associated with raising a child. Child support may also include money for education, medical bills, or child care. This money is typically paid by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent, the parent who has primary custody of the child. Child support is typically set up in a divorce, but may also arise in a situation where paternity is established and the father is held responsible for a portion of the child’s care.
