We also strive to ensure the child custody solution we reach will be approved by the family courts so you and your children do not have to endure any further lengthy court appearances.

Factors Considered in a Child Support Case

As for child support, a number of factors are reviewed by the court to determine the amount that needs to be paid by either one or each parent to support their family.

Said factors include:

  • Educational Expenses
  • Childcare Expenses
  • Medical Expenses
  • Ages of Your Children
  • How Many Children Require Support
  • The Earning Potential of Each Spouse

Our Mason City child support lawyers can help you and your spouse reach an agreeable amount of child support, as well as help you adjust the amount of child support in the future if any financial problems should arise. If your ex-spouse fails to pay child support, we can help you challenge to collect any back-amount owed.
