Child Support Attorneys in Portland
Our Experienced Family Lawyers Can Protect Your Interests
In a divorce or when paternity is established, child support may need to be addressed. This is an amount of money paid by one parent to another to provide for the support and care of a shared child or children. Support is typically paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent, although support is also paid in shared custody arrangements if there is an income disparity between parents or if the child or children spend more time living with one parent than the other.
If you have questions about child support or need help enforcing or modifying an existing support arrangement, Levine Law Center can offer experienced guidance. Our Portland child support attorneys can protect your interests by properly presenting your financial situation, initiating enforcement proceedings, pursuing a modification of support, and representing you in any applicable hearings or court proceedings. Because we handle all aspects of family law and divorce, you can count on our ability to properly handle your child support matter.
Determining & Paying Child Support in Oregon
The foundation for determining child support obligations can be found in Oregon Child Support Guidelines, including an online calculator that can provide an estimate of what support you may be entitled to receive or required to pay.
Child support will be determined based on:
- Each parent’s income
- Any spousal support received or paid by each parent
- Any union dues paid by each parent
- The number of children
- How much time (specifically overnight stays) the child/children spend with each parent
- Any child care costs that apply for disabled children or children under the age of 13
- Any Social Security or other benefits a child receives
- Any other children each parent has living with him/her
- Healthcare coverage costs for each parent and the child/children
