Child Support and Maintenance
The Virginia courts can order a party to pay child support, either temporary or permanent, for the maintenance of a child. Child support is a non-taxable payment that cannot be deducted by the payor. Parties may enter agreements regarding the payment of child support, but such agreements should usually be incorporated into a court order. The courts generally apply statutory guidelines to determine child support and maintenance awards, unless a deviation is warranted under Virginia Code Section § 20-108.1 (1950, as amended).
We use our expertise to evaluate a party’s child support obligations and needs, by considering the respective gross income and the expenses of the parties, the needs of the children, and other relevant circumstances.
We encourage clients to incorporate any agreement into an order from a court of competent jurisdiction to enable proper enforcement. We also have vast experience assisting clients with support cases that have complex jurisdictional issues.
