Pennsylvania Child Support

Courts in Pennsylvania use a specific formula to determine child support obligations. However, the correct numbers that should be used in that formula are often subject to dispute, making legal proofs and arguments necessary to protect your interests. Our child support attorneys at Berman & Associates place the highest priority on protecting your child’s or children’s best interests and the rights of you, our client. We make sure you receive fair treatment when going through the child support process.

Based in Media, Pennsylvania, our attorneys have worked with thousands of parents in Delaware County, Philadelphia County, and Chester County to determine fair child support in their cases.

Factors in Determining Pennsylvania Child Support

Courts take the following factors into account when determining child support payments:

  • Each parent’s income and income capacity
  • The amount of money each parent spends on child care
  • How many children you claim as dependents on your taxes
  • Health insurance and other medical expenses for your children
  • The amount of custodial time with each parent
  • Whether or not private schooling is reasonable and allocation of that expense
  • Whether or not extracurricular activities are reasonable and allocation of that expense

We will advocate for you to receive the child support payments appropriate within the state guidelines. There may be opportunities to apply deductions that will modify the amount of money you pay or receive.

Modifying Child Support Payments When Circumstances Change

If a parent’s financial situation has changed substantially, you may qualify to seek a modification of child support. This can happen when a parent receives a substantial raise or loses a job. Our lawyers can help you examine your options and determine the best way to proceed.
