Child support payments are made by the noncustodial parent to support the upbringing of their children. Controversy can arise in situations where the noncustodial parent fails to provide child support for any reason. In these situations, it is important to hire a knowledgeable Will County child support attorney like the child support lawyers employed by Chuck Bretz & Associates in Joliet.
While failure to pay child support can result in fine and even jail time, it can be extremely difficult to prosecute absentee parents. It can also involve a lengthy and often frustrating process if you are not working with an experienced lawyer for child support. Fathers can sometimes have a rough experience with the court, as compassion tends to be directed towards the mother, and our divorce attorneys for men know how to handle this bias if it arises.
When a parent does not have physical custody of his or her child, child support is required because it is presumed that that parent's income does not benefit the child on a daily basis. When seeking child support, some parents may attempt to hide money or income to reduce their financial obligation. The attorneys at Chuck Bretz & Associates will use a full arsenal of tools and skills to ensure a proper amount of child support is ordered and secured.
