As a parent, you do everything in your power to make sure your children are properly provided for. When you are separated or divorced from your child’s other parent, there will come a time when you are faced with child support issues such as paying, receiving, or establishing an initial child support amount, or modifying and enforcing an existing child support order.
In most cases, child support in Maryland is determined by the child support guidelines which are written into Maryland law. The guidelines are helpful in making sure that you and your children’s other parent have enough money to meet your own needs and to provide for your children.

Ingram, our child support attorneys work with you to ensure that everything is properly calculated based on all relevant information, including child care and health care expenses.

If that’s true in your case, we’ll present the court with the information necessary to determine an appropriate child support amount.
