Child Support

In Virginia, child support is based off the needs of the child, and the financial earnings, assets, and needs of the parents. Our experienced attorneys at Bush and Taylor in Suffolk, Virginia Beach & Eastern Shore understand what the effects of not receiving needed child support or having to pay child support can have on a parent. The non-custodial parent can pay support directly to the custodial parent or to the Department of Child Support enforcement.

If the needs of the child or the non-custodial parent’s situation or circumstances change drastically, child support can be either raised or lowered. If the non-custodial parent, referred to as the obligor, does not pay the court-ordered support the amount and arrearages can be garnished from the obligor’s paychecks, and ultimately, there is the potential for jail time.
