Helping Clients Find Workable Child Support Solutions Since 1982
You and your former spouse want to find a solution to your child support debate. Both of you know that entering a drawn-out battle is not the best choice for your children. Still, you want to protect your finances and obtain the support arrangement that is in your best interests.
This is where Cook & Associates comes in. We are a Pittsburgh-based law firm that assists families throughout Pennsylvania with numerous family law matters. Since 1982, we have proudly helped our clients use amicable negotiation methods to reach mutually beneficial child support arrangements. If you need legal guidance regarding child support, we can help.
Negotiate Child Support Nonadversarially
At Cook & Associates, we believe that when parents who are no longer together can set aside their differences, they can often reach positive solutions out of court. This keeps children sheltered from the harsh reality of divorce and the stressful legal battles that can come with it. When you need a legal representative in your negotiations, our lawyers will advocate for you.
Inevitably, some child support cases proceed to court. If you and your ex cannot find a solution privately, our experienced trial attorneys will not hesitate to take your case to court. We will help you fight to get the support order that is best for you and your children.
How Much Child Support Will I Pay? How Much Will I Receive?
Many people want to know in advance how much child support they can expect to pay, and how much they can expect to receive. Child support in Pennsylvania is based on a formula. But, the court can also consider cost of medical insurance, child care and extracurricular activities, to name a few. We can give you an idea of what to expect from your child support order when you speak to our child support attorneys.
