Child Support Pompano Beach FL

Children have as much of a right to their parents as parents have a right to their children. If you want to establish your rights and responsibility as a parent, file for child support, child support reduction, or child support modification, it is essential to assert those privileges. Sheena Benjamin-Wise is experienced in both the determination and revision of paternity rights and can help in the following scenarios:

  1. Unmarried parents often find themselves in conflict because they are not knowledgeable of what the law requires of them to co-parent or set up a shared custody agreement for their child. Once you are deemed the legal parent over a child, you have a right to confer over the welfare of the child, and enjoy time with your child.
  2. You may have recently discovered that you have been misled or deceived into believing that you are a parent to another’s child. You may wish to address this matter and prove that you are not the father of a child in a disestablishment of paternity action.
Parental Rights & Child Support

Parents have a right and responsibility to raise and have access to their children in Pompano Beach FL. Parents cannot waive the child’s right to be supported. Generally, child support is payable until the child is 18 years of age, graduates high school, gets married, becomes emancipated, or dies. A child with special needs may have payments extended beyond the child’s 18th birthday.

The calculation of child support depends on many factors, such as time-sharing, the parents’ incomes, educational expenses, insurance costs, childcare costs, and extracurricular expenses.

Child Support is the legal determination to financially contribute for the needs of minor children. Every child has the right to have financial support from both their parents.

Attorney Sheena Benjamin-Wise will help you ensure that your child support calculation is fair, accurate, and appropriate.
