Divorce is hard for everyone involved, but no one is affected more than your children. You can buy a new house, a new car or a new couch, but you only have one baby. At Heather D. Miller Nichols PA, we are passionate about minimizing the potential negative impact on every child.
North Carolina child support guidelines are specific and depend on the gross monthly income of the secondary custodial parent — the parent with whom the child visits, but does not live. The parent who has primary custody does not pay child support. The honest truth is: Whether you want to or not, you will pay child support. That money belongs to your child. It ensures that he or she has adequate care.
This is an essential part of the legal practice at Heather D. Miller Nichols PA. Our Fayetteville child support attorney is dedicated to creating the best possible environment for your children.
Our Fort Bragg Support Deviations Attorney Knows The Military Well
Military parents see a more complex side of child support. Drawing on her experience working with military personnel, attorney Cooke can assist in determining the amount of child support your child needs.
Deviations are another complex area of child support. The child support amount may deviate up or down depending on your child’s needs in regard to schooling or the location and financial needs of the secondary parent. For example, if you are a secondary parent who was first stationed at Ft. Bragg and now stationed at Fort Bliss, you may be eligible to deviate down. These extra funds would go toward the cost of plane tickets so that you can visit your child.
At Heather D. Miller Nichols PA, we take a positive approach to an otherwise negative life event. We view divorce as an opportunity to take one family and make it into two. We are dedicated to compassionately and practically preparing a brighter, happier future for you and your loved ones. Our lawyer sees no benefit in offering false hopes or creating unrealistic expectations.
