Chico Child Support Attorney
Child support is a financial payment that is made by one parent for the everyday expenses and daily care of a child. Generally, child support is paid to the other parent but in some cases, it may be provided to another caregiver, such as a guardian. Child support is most often included in the divorce and custody proceedings. This comes with many rules and regulations. It is essential that you hire a Chico child support attorney that is familiar with local courts who will represent your interest and the interest of your child. Child support is most often paid for all minor children, those under the age of 18. Exceptions are made if the child enters college or marries earlier or if the child has not yet graduated from high school on his or her eighteenth birthday. In the event that the minor child receiving support is disabled, this support may be required to continue beyond the eighteenth birthday indefinitely. There are many factors that play into each case.
