Guiding You Through Complex Child Support Laws

In many divorce cases or custody cases that involve child custody, mandatory child support is ordered to be paid from one parent to the other. In most cases, the court will order the non-custodial parent to make payments to the custodial parent. If physical custody is shared, a special agreement may be established.

Child support matters can quickly get stressful and become a subject of significant litigation if you do not have a child support attorney to represent you. At Davis | Family Law, we have more than 33 years of experience in family law and are prepared to help guide you through the complex process.
