Calculating Child Support

Determining child support is often a fairly straightforward process. Values are inputted in a child support calculation worksheet and calculated according to the gross income of the parents, cost of childcare, health care expenses, number of overnights and other factors.

Representing Clients in Child Support Disputes

Child support guidelines are in place to ensure both parents are contributing to the cost of raising a child. If you are paying child support, you should not have to worry about losing your living expenses to support the other parent’s lifestyle. However, some child support cases will proceed to mediation or trial over disputes of paying too much or too little income.

Mediation is a requirement in Indiana for most family law disputes. It is often less contentious, less expensive and more likely to result in an outcome that both sides can accept. Some disputes cannot be resolved amicably, however. Attorney Robert Bellinger is a skilled trial lawyer who will fervently represent your interests in court whenever that is to your advantage.

Fort Wayne Support Modifications Lawyer

If you have undergone a significant change in circumstances — such as a job loss — you are eligible to modify an existing child support agreement. Attorney Bellinger has significant experience working with clients in modifying child support both upward and downward to reflect a client’s financial situation.
