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.

Let our office answer your questions about Virginia’s child support laws. Call (703) 721-7640 today to speak with a family law attorney.

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.
