Norman And Wewoka Child Support Attorneys

Oklahoma Lawyers For Child Support Calculations, Enforcement And Modifications

Children deserve the financial and emotional support of both parents after a divorce. The basic necessities of life, plus education and health care expenses, should be financed through collaboration between former spouses if at all possible — and divorced parents working together can ensure a child's overall positive upbringing.

For skilled legal assistance in determining the amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive after divorce — or if you want to pursue a modification of child support due to a recent change in circumstances — skilled lawyers at Nichols Dixon can help. The firm also offers assistance with paternity claims, custody modifications, child support enforcement, assertion of grandparents' rights and a full range of other family law matters.

A Firm You Can Trust For Guidance On Any Aspect Of Oklahoma Child Support

Basic child support considerations to keep in mind include:

  • Child support is typically paid by the noncustodial parent to a custodial parent and is awarded in child custody cases — regardless of whether a child's parents were ever married.
  • In Oklahoma, a statewide child support calculator is in place to help ensure that required payments are fair and equitable.
  • Child support payments are required on a monthly basis until the child reaches age 18, unless special schooling or medical needs become factors.
  • If a sudden, significant change in circumstances — caused by a job loss or promotion, job transfer or health care emergency, for example — justifies a modification to a child support obligation, you should speak with a knowledgeable lawyer as soon as possible.
