Family Law Attorneys in District of Columbia Fight for Fair Child Support
Assertive attorneys dedicated to your child’s well-being
After divorce, the division of your family into two households substantially affects your children, emotionally and financially. Drawing on more than 29 years of experience, Law Offices of Marvin Liss advocates for the financial support your children deserve.
I help parents:
- Understand child support guidelines
- Negotiate child support through mediation
- Litigate child support issues
- Enforce child support orders
- Modify child support orders
Sometimes trial is necessary to obtain the financial support your child deserves. I meticulously prepare for litigation and zealously fight for your child’s right to a financially stable upbringing.
Working with state child support guidelines
District of Columbia law has established general child support guidelines. I strive to achieve the best possible financial solutions within the framework of these guidelines. That begins with using the discovery process to compel a full, truthful financial disclosure, so the court can calculate basic child support with accurate data. Affluent couples must often deal with issues beyond basic child support, such as payments for private school tuition, sports and enrichment activities. I work to achieve results that do justice to your children within your own financial reality.
Child support settlements through mediation
The structured process of mediation provides the opportunity for you and your spouse to put aside your differences and focus on the one point about which you likely agree – your children’s well-being. I carefully guide the mediation process toward the most equitable solutions that serve the needs of the children.
Enforcement and modification of child support
Both parents share the responsibility of raising their child. When your former spouse tries to evade crucial financial obligations, Law Offices of Marvin Liss can compel the enforcement of your child support order. However, the law understands that a lost job or serious injury can render a parent unable to pay child support. Still, a parent is required to pay the full amount until the court modifies its order. I can process a modification of your child support order expeditiously.
