Child support in Arkansas is based on the noncustodial parent’s income and the number of children he or she is providing for. This might seem like a simple formula, but these calculations only fulfill their purpose if accurate information is used and both parties honor their obligations. At Worsham Law Firm, P.A. in Little Rock, we are accomplished family lawyers who handle initial child support matters as well as modification and enforcement actions. Whether a dispute exists regarding the noncustodial parent’s actual income, or a job loss severely affects your ability to make support payments, we’ll outline the relevant legal process and help you seek an appropriate result.
Legal matters relating to child support are complex and can involve a broad range of issues, such as:
In some cases, mediation is a useful, cost-effective way to reach consensus on child support matters, custody concerns and other issues relating to divorce. We are committed to doing whatever works best in your child support case, starting with a free initial consultation.
Job losses, medical conditions and family emergencies could all have a significant impact on a noncustodial parent’s income. In these cases, it’s critical for a paying parent to know they cannot alter or avoid their child support payments on their own, no matter how compelling their justification might be. Any modification to a support order must be approved by the court. Our firm initiates petitions to revise child support obligations when a substantial change occurs.
