The Attorney For Every Stage In Life

Both Parents Should Play A Role In Child Support

When parents divorce or unmarried parents split up, both remain responsible for the care and well-being of minor children. It is often necessary and appropriate for one parent to provide the other with child support to cover food, shelter, health care and other necessities for the child. At Horner Law LLC in Wilmington, we handle child custody and child support issues. Attorney Keith Horner will work with you personally to achieve legal orders that protect the best interests of your child.

How Is Child Support Determined?

In Delaware, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that take into account factors such as:

  • The number of children
  • The income of each parent
  • Child care costs
  • Number of overnights per year
  • Special needs of the children

While many child support cases are straightforward, there are factors that can add complexity to the situation. For instance, if one parent is self-employed, hiding income or otherwise obstructing the process, aggressive legal action may be called for.

We can help you establish initial child support orders that are fair and protect what matters most — the best interests of your child. We can also represent you in child support modification and enforcement issues.
