Child Support & Alimony jeanpage

Child support & alimony cases in San Antonio may be contentious, and you must ensure that you are working with a family law practice that will handle every step of your case. You may request alimony, or you may have an ex who is requesting alimony from you. Each case is different, and your lawyer will give you a vigorous defense that helps protect your rights. This article explains how these cases are litigated properly.

#1: How Much Child Support

Child support is often a forgone conclusion when you are in the midst of a divorce, and you must ask your attorney how much you should pay. Your attorney will use a formula to determine how much money you should pay, and you may ask your attorney to fight for a specific number in court.

#2: How Much Alimony Should You Pay?

Alimony payments are even more contentious when one spouse must pay for the lifestyle of another. You may be loathe to pay for alimony after your divorce, and you must have your lawyer represent your interests in court. A similar formula is applied, and your attorney will advise of the number that must be paid.

Negotiating a settlement on child support and alimony is an important part of your divorce, and you must hire a lawyer to handle the negotiations. Every negotiation will end in an agreement that should make both parties happy, and your lawyer will work diligently on your behalf until you are pleased with the end result.
