Maryland Child Support Lawyers

Maryland Child Support

Child support is a court-ordered payment from one parent to the other parent to help pay for the health and well-being of your child. Maryland child support is based on the idea that both parents are required, by law, to financially support their child to the extent they are financially able. Maryland child support issues can arise during a divorce, after a divorce, or even of the parents of the child have never been married to each other.

Maryland Child Support Calculations

Child support is determined by many factors, including each of the parent's income, child custody arrangements, educational needs, after-school care, health insurance costs for the child, and more. The Maryland Department of Human Resources has developed an online child support calculator. The calculator estimates the child support based on Maryland guidelines, and is for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. There may be other factors not accounted for by the calculator and the result by the calculator does not guarantee the amount of Maryland child support a Court would award in your case.

Changing Maryland Child Support Payments

Sometimes, after the Court orders the amount of child support to be paid, circumstances can arise such that the child support order needs to be changed. When you have to pay child support but your hours have been significantly cut at work, you have been laid off or you are now disabled and cannot work, you cannot just reduce your Maryland child support payments without first getting Court approval. If you try to reduce or stop your payments without first getting Court approval, you may still be liable for any missed and unpaid payments. This does not change even if the other parent agrees to a reduced amount.

Failure to pay the court ordered Maryland child support can come back against you years down the road. Failure to pay Maryland child support can result in your drivers' license being suspended, in a suspension of certain occupational licenses or even in your tax refund being seized.  Unpaid child support may also become a lien on your real or personal property.

What if you are receiving child support payments, but believe that you are entitled to receive more child support for your child? The Maryland child support lawyers at Edwards Phillip Amourgis, PC may also help you increase the Maryland child support payments you receive.
