In the event of a divorce or separation the needs of any children involved are of highest priority to the courts. Once custody and access issues are settled, the matter of child support may need to be determined, including how much will be paid, and who is owed support. Child support is typically given to the parent that is given primary custody, and therefore incurs the majority of expenses from raising the child. If you believe that you may be entitled to either receive or pay child support Confente Garcea Lawyers can help you.
