Child Support — An Essential Element Of Your Parenting Plan

"I didn't become a dad (or mom) just to see my kids two weekends a month while paying unreasonable amounts of child support."

"I didn't start a family with him (or her) expecting to bear the financial burdens of raising children without adequate contributions, including financial support, from their father (or mother)."

Does either of these sentiments ring a bell for you? At Hutchings & Schwappach, we often hear such comments from our clients. Parents may be approaching a divorce. Some were never married. Others seek a modification of a current child support order. In any case, the challenges are real.

Knowing your legal rights is a vital starting point in a child support case. You should understand what Missouri laws have to say about your situation. Then you will be in a better position to push for a fair outcome. Our child support attorneys have ample experience helping parents throughout the Kansas City area pursue reasonable child support orders.

Our family law attorneys can guide you through:

  • Getting a reasonable child support order included in your divorce
  • Challenging a request for unreasonably high or low child support payments
  • Seeking a child support modification

A modification to a child support order can account for substantial changes in a parent's finances and life circumstances or a child's developing special needs.
