DuPage County Child Support Attorney

Child Support Lawyer

So many single parents stay awake at night filled with worry while wondering how on earth they are going to support their children.  Will there be enough money this month to put healthy meals on the table?  Will they be able to afford book fees and sports equipment for school?  Will there be enough left over for co-pays at the pediatrician’s office?

These worries are compounded if they are caused by an ex-spouse who fails to pay court-ordered child support.  Rather than going it alone, hiring a child support lawyer can be your next best move.  Most single parents are already overwhelmed by working full time, caring for children and keeping the mortgage or rent paid – they don’t have time to delve into the law to find out if there’s more the courts can do.  But a skilled DuPage County child support lawyer at Wolfe & Stec does have the time and experience to do just that.

You don’t have to feel alone and afraid.  Contact a child support attorney today at 630-305-0222 or 312-388-7882 to find out what some answers might be.  The courts are here to protect the well-being of children.  Make the laws work in your favor.

What Can a Child Support Lawyer Do for Me?

A child support lawyer knows how to sift through statutes and case law to find the right court rulings to support your arguments.  A skilled DuPage child support attorney doesn’t rely on emotion or distress to prove your case – they rely on the law.

After years of law school and sometimes decades in the courtroom, a child support lawyer knows the ins and outs of legal processes, as well as the personalities of judges, opposing attorneys and courthouse staff.  These relationships and familiarity with the legal process can prove to be invaluable assets for you.  Also, a DuPage child support lawyer at Wolfe & Stec understands the delicacy and sensitivity of these types of cases, and he or she will always treat you and your children with respect and understanding.  The court system can be an intimidating world, especially if you’re already tired and feeling stretched.  A child support attorney can make that world a little easier for you.

What Are the Steps After I Hire a Child Support Attorney?

First, and perhaps most importantly, a DuPage child support attorney will sit down with you and listen closely to the things that are bothering you most and keeping you up at night.  We will take copious notes and work to understand your priorities.  Then we will explain recent case law and existing statues that may work in your favor and help you achieve your desired outcome.  We will craft convincing arguments that implore the judge to enforce already-existing orders for child support, and we will look for new arguments for additional or increased financial support.

We will file legal briefs on your behalf and argue in front of a judge if necessary.  Our DuPage child support lawyers understand that raising a child is an expensive endeavor, and it can be too much for any one parent to undertake.  For more information about how a child support lawyer at Wolfe & Stec might be able to assist you with your situation, call us at 630-305-0222 or 312-388-7882 for an initial consultation.

Divorce Can Cause Child Support Disagreements

Making important decisions about the financial security of a child is extremely important. The child support lawyers of Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., are experienced in handling even the most complex child support cases.

When determining child support for the first time, we closely examine the financial situations of both parents. This includes analysis of earnings, income and other financial resources. It is important to note that there are many different variables that can impact how income is treated for purposes of child support.

NON-PAYMENT OF CHILD SUPPORT

One of the most difficult situations a parent can deal with is when the other parent fails to pay child support. This scenario is all too familiar, and the one who ultimately suffers is the child. Our attorneys have extensive experience in divorce and family law litigation. We are not afraid to fight aggressively in court regarding the non-payment of child support.  A child should not have to suffer because of the irresponsibility or bad behavior of a parent.  If you find yourself stuck with an ex-spouse who refuses to consistently pay child support, you don’t have to struggle alone.  Call a skilled DuPage child support lawyer at Wolfe & Stec today at 630-305-0222 or 312-388-7882 so that we can find a solution together.  Our years of experience with these cases can work in your favor.

Recent Family Law Results

During trial four experts all testified against our client the Judge found it was in the best interest of the child that our client be awarded custody. We have successfully represented clients in numerous child custody cases.

Child Custody

We recently analyzed a case whereby the opposing side was seeking a substantial award of maintenance against our client. After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances and several hearings, our client’s obligation to pay maintenance was limited to two years at half of what his former spouse was seeking.

Alimony (Maintenance/Support)

After our client voluntarily changed employment we were able to obtain a substantial reduction in child support payments. We have also stopped such reductions when representing clients receiving child support.
