Child Support

Child Support Orders are far more than cash payments from one parent to the other. Nearly every child support order deals with tax exemptions, college support, payment of medical expenses, funds needed for extracurricular activities/sports, daycare expenses, and many other issues. Failure to fully consider important issues at the time of the support order may present serious challenges to future modification or correction of such errors and omissions.

At the heart of any child support order is each parents income. This may require careful analysis to determine if either party is hiding income or assets that should be considered by the court in making a support determination. Douglas R. Hughes, of Hughes & Nelson, P.L.L.C., and Emily S. Nelson spent many years as deputy prosecutors and are familiar with those seeking to hide assets or escape consideration from the court.
