Are you a divorced parent having problems getting your child’s other parent to pay child support or live up to their end of a parenting/Visitation Agreement Child support is usually ordered at the time of a divorce as part of a child custody agreement. But it’s not uncommon to have to go back to court to seek a modification of your child support order because the situation has changed … or to have to go back to court because you haven’t been getting the child support you are due.
Child support and child visitation are two completely separate things, but sometimes parents have problems with one and then cause problems with the other. If a parent is late on child support payments, you cannot legally prevent him or her from seeing their child. If the custodial parent has prevented you from seeing your child, that is not a valid reason to stop paying support.
Take your case back to court! Your child custody lawyer can help with child support enforcement and renegotiation of custody and visitation.
Are you a step-parent who wants to demonstrate your love and commitment to a stepchild by adopting him or her? Many child custody lawyers help with step-parent adoption.
