Huntington Child Support Lawyers Get Your Kids What They Deserve

Resolution for child custody and support issues

When parents get divorced, the emotional stress on children can be overwhelming. Fear, sadness, guilt and anger are just some of the feelings they may experience. An experienced attorney knows how to handle the situation. You are going to need such an attorney to help you with custody, visitation and support issues. Mathew J. Roth is an attorney that understands the pressures involved and that has attorneys who handle these situations with compassion and sympathy.

DeLaney Hartburg Roth & Garrott LLP is a full-service firm with dedicated lawyers for family law. We help you get through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible, always keeping in mind what is best for you and your children. We assist with parenting time plans, custody, visitation, child support, and modifications of these arrangements.

Child custody in Indiana

There are two types of custody — physical and legal. Physical custody refers to where the children actually live. It can be joint, where the children split time between both parents, or sole, which means the children live with one parent and enjoy parenting time with the other. Legal custody refers to making major decisions about your children's lives, such as about their education, religion and medical care. Legal custody can also be sole or joint. Our child custody attorneys in Huntington, IN help clients with both.

The judge takes many factors into account before approving a child custody arrangement, including:

  • Parents' wishes
  • Wishes of children over the age of 14
  • Age and sex of children involved
  • Relationship between siblings and between them and their parents
  • Children's acclimation to home, school and community
  • History of abuse
  • Mental and physical health of all involved parties

Child support in Indiana

Child support payments are paid by the non-custodial parent. These payments are based on the Indiana Child Support Guidelines, which were created to ensure that children receive the same benefits they would have had if their parents had stayed together. The dollar amount is calculated from a formula that takes numerous financials, such as each parent's weekly income and childcare costs, into account. At DeLaney Hartburg Roth & Garrott LLP, our Huntington child support lawyers ensure that the payments are reasonable and that your children get the financial support they are entitled to receive.

Once the dollar amount has been established, the non-custodial parent is required to pay that amount at set intervals. If there is a significant change in either parent's financial status, such as a large raise or loss of employment, modification can be requested through the court. Our attorneys have successfully helped mothers and fathers with child support matters for decades. We take great care to protect the children and ensure they are safe.
