Child support is a court-mandated order where one parent must help financially support the raising of any children. Either parent can be awarded child support or be made to pay child support based on a number of factors.
In order to receive child support, one parent or a lawyer acting on behalf of a parent must file with the court. This requires paying close attention to all necessary documents and supporting facts, and paperwork must be filed within strike time limits. After these necessary steps are completed, a judge will rule over the case and determine if either parent is awarded child support.
