Under Virginia law, the party receiving visitation rights is usually expected to contribute to the support of the minor child. Child support is calculated according to guidelines established in the code, but the court may deviate from these guidelines in its discretion.
For a court to deviate from the statutory child support guidelines, it must find that the amount would be unfair and would not be in the best interests of the child.
The court may also modify existing child support payments if there has been a material change in the circumstances of either or both of the parents or of the child. We often represent clients seeking just financial compensation for spousal support or child support payments and we have seen how common it is for neglectful noncustodial parents to challenge existing custody orders to avoid their financial obligations.
As an experienced Fredericksburg family law lawyer, Attorney Lowery has an in-depth understanding of all aspects of child support payments in Virginia and is dedicated to ensuring that our clients are receiving the support they need or are paying the correct amount for their specific situation.
