Child Support Lawyer

Child Support Payment Check
National Academy of Family Law Attorneys

Any divorce with children includes child support. A child support lawyer can help you navigate the legal system when there is a child support issue.

The state of South Carolina uses a formula to determine child support based on the income of both parents and important expenses, including child care costs. However, family court judges can modify child support payment orders when circumstances change.

As a family law attorney, Nathan Sheldon helps families involved in disputes over child support payments. In 2015, he was named as one of the Top 10 Family Law Attorney’s under 40 in South Carolina by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys. As a former prosecutor, he’s comfortable in litigation and standing up in family court to present your case.

Child Support Modifications

South Carolina Family Court judges can modify child support agreements when there have been substantial changes in the financial or living circumstances of the parents. This can include changes in income of either parent, remarriage that impacts alimony payments or changes in the needs of a child.

Nathan Sheldon can help with Child Support Modifications if:

  • You are unable to pay your current support payments due to changes in your earning ability.
  • The child’s parent has gone to court to reduce the payment amount.

Enforcement

Only about 70% of all child support is actually paid. Payment enforcement is possible if you are not receiving your court ordered child support payments. As your child support attorney, Nathan Sheldon will discuss the possibilities with you. He’ll help you take the right legal steps to force your child’s parent to pay.

Having an experienced child support lawyer on your side is important.
