Fairfax Child Support Lawyers
Considering Your Family’s Best Interests During Divorce
During divorces and child custody concerns, child support can help create financial security, but many parents have questions regarding obtaining or paying child support. At the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC, we offer trusted representation to parents seeking support and to parents ordered to pay support. With over 30 years of legal experience in serving military and government families, you can put your trust in our Fairfax child support lawyers.
For most people, dealing with lawyers is difficult. We get that. When a child support law matter comes up, powerful emotions often make it even more difficult to deal with, and no one wants to take time off from work or drive a long distance, worrying about traffic and parking, only to sit in a strange law office waiting to meet a lawyer for the first time. We understand that. We found a better way a long ago. Setting up a video teleconference with one of our attorneys, for an initial client consultation or a follow-up, is easy via “Zoom”, “Facetime”, “Cisco Webex”, “Skype”, or other means of video teleconferencing. Just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll make it happen. And wear whatever you’d like. We will too.
Understanding Virginia’s Child Support Laws
In accordance with Virginia law, each parent is obligated to provide financial support for their children unless legally released from doing so. These payments, known as child support, are put in place to help reduce the strain on the custodial parent and the child in question should the parents divorce. Child support can be established during a divorce proceeding or otherwise.
There are numerous factors that may be taken into consideration when determining child support and payments schedules, including:
- The parent’s income and ability to work
- The combined parent’s income
- The number of children that need to be supported
- The custody arrangements of the parents
- Work-related child care
- Cost of health care coverage for the child
Of course, each case is different, just like each family is different, which means that there should always be an attorney present to help with child support cases. Our child support attorneys can work with your family and help you obtain support, or represent you as the parent obligated to pay the support.

Without his guidance and representation I am confident that I would be lost and without my children.

Your validation has pulled his life out of quicksand.
“You've given him hope and thoughts of a productive future. He has reason to persevere.”
Divorce wasn’t easy, I’m glad Sarah was my lawyer.
“I chose this law office on the recommendation of a friend who went through a divorce just before I did, and I am grateful for my friend's own misery (we both laugh now about our not so fun times). Although I wouldn't wish a divorce on anyone (stick it out and try every day to make it work, or until about the sixth time she tells you she wants a divorce!), for my marriage there wasn't another option. As miserable a time as I had through more than two years of separation and divorce proceedings, I am happy that Sarah and her team were with me. Sarah always ensured my interests were protected, and her legal advice was always spot on. We never encountered any legal setbacks other than spending more time in court than expected because of the other side's actions. She was proactive in every way possible, and seemed to be a step ahead of the other side. With Sarah's help I finalized my divorce on my terms and gave up nothing that mattered to me. Thank you!”
I want to thank you for your wise counsel and words of encouragement over the last 18 months.
“It was an ordeal for me, but your assistance undoubtedly made it easier. ”

“His practice is almost fully electronic, which keeps costs down and enables him to help military families even stationed overseas.”
I can always count on receiving timely and substantive advice
“Sarah has been working on my divorce and follow-on support/visitation issues for several years. I can always count on receiving timely and substantive advice regarding any situation or question I may have, no matter how novel. I think her best trait is that she knows my situation inside and out and understands the mindset of my ex-wife. This ability allows her to provide advice on my case that I may be blindsided by because I am too close to the trees to see the forest. I cannot describe how much confidence I have knowing that I have an attorney like Sarah in my corner for any future battles with my ex.”
It is not only the legal work – but the feeling of protection, understanding, and caring that sets you apart.
“I thank you both for bolstering me up and looking out for me when I needed it most.”
I was blessed to have you and your team to represent me, it was worth every penny!
“You all showed that you had my needs and desires at the forefront. ”
