Divorce, Custody, and Family Law
Maryland Child Support Lawyers
When you’re going through a divorce, there’s a lot to deal with—including the livelihood of your children. Not only do you have to worry about providing them support as they ease into a new way of life, but you’ll have to determine custody and child support accordingly.
In order to get through these difficult times, it’s important to have legal representation that’s knowledgeable but understanding of your situation—like the Maryland child support lawyers at Andalman & Flynn. We can help you establish child custody and continue to assist you in determining child support accordingly.
Child Support Laws
In Maryland, the child support arrangements—how much the non-custodial parent will pay to the custodial parent—are generally determined by the child support guidelines. However, the final monthly amount, whether determined by the parties or by the judge, can be substantially more or less than the guidelines dictate. This is based on several factors that include:
- Marital debts
- College education expenses
- The right to occupy the family home
- And other financial terms.
Also a factor is the presence in either parent’s household of children from other relationships that the parent has a duty to support. Additionally, the family home, car, and items in the home may be awarded to the parent who has custody of a child so that the child can continue to live in the environment and community that they are familiar with.
