Child support is objectively measured in custody and divorce cases. It is determined by a formula set out in Missouri statutes with little room for adjustment. Without accurate income information, it is difficult to come to a fair payment amount.
When you take your child support matter to The Mitchell Law Firm, LLC, we review income information for both parents. If the other parent understates their income or exaggerates yours, that can lead to you paying too much or receiving too little. That is why we do not put forth a child support order until we review pay stubs and tax returns thoroughly so income is represented correctly on the child support forms.
It can be difficult and expensive to modify a child support order once it is final, so precision is essential. Even unemployment or a reduction in income is not a guarantee that an obligation will decrease so we work hard to make sure the obligation is correct.
