Child Support Enforcement and Modification
Under federal and state law, parents are obligated to provide financial support for their children.
As an experienced family lawyer, Shannon stays on top of all domestic issues that could affect your child’s future, ensuring that no responsibilities are neglected, all financial needs are met and his or her future is protected.
To that end, Shannon anticipates children’s potential financial needs – encouraging her clients and their spouses to discuss and agree upon a budget for their family’s variable costs, so they don’t become eventual sources of conflict.
When unexpected circumstances arise, however, such as a spouse losing his or her job, income reduction or a child incurring a medical emergency, a legitimate case can be made for either temporary or permanent child support modification.
Shannon’s familiarity with court-accepted reasons for child support modification is invaluable to her clients – as is her ability to read and react to potential hazards with a roster of creative solutions.
