Annapolis Child Support Attorneys

The goal of the child support system is to provide children with the financial support they deserve based on the amounts that both of their parents can reasonably afford to pay. An experienced attorney can help you protect your interests in a child support matter.

At the law firm of Trainor, Billman, Bennett & Milko, LLP, our experienced Annapolis child support lawyers assist parents throughout the Annapolis region and the Eastern Shore with the determination, modification and enforcement of child support obligations.

Addressing the Full Range of Maryland Child Support Issues

In Maryland, child support is calculated using a formula that takes into account factors like each parent's income, each parent's share of custody, and the cost of child care and health benefits. We help clients pursue fair outcomes in circumstances such as the following:

  • Divorce : Our attorneys can help you seek a fair child support determination in your divorce case by identifying sources of income and imputing income where appropriate.
  • Paternity: If you were not married to the father of your child at the time of his or her birth, our firm can help you pursue child support through a paternity action if necessary.
  • Modification: Maryland has recently revised its child support guidelines for the first time in several decades. We can help you determine whether you are eligible for a modification.
  • Enforcement: Our experienced child support enforcement lawyers use a variety of methods to pursue unpaid child support, including contempt actions when necessary.
