Dedicated Lawyer Advises Parents on Tennessee Child Support Issues

Experienced Chattanooga firm works to establish and enforce fair rates

Strict rules govern Tennessee child support matters when parents no longer live together. An experienced family law attorney can help you understand these guidelines and protect your rights and the rights of your child should a discrepancy arise. At the Law Offices of Robert W. Sauser, in Chattanooga, I counsel clients on the statutory guidelines and seek appropriate adjustments when a health or education issue demands deviation from the typical rules. My firm also represents both paying and recipient parents in child support modification and enforcement proceedings.

Ethical attorney assists with modification actions and special circumstances

When a divorce occurs or unmarried parents break up, my firm handles each issue pertaining to financial child support, including concerns that might arise later, such as:

  • Establishment — Using the state’s formula, my firm takes information about both parents’ incomes, child care costs and medical insurance payments to estimate what the final child support rate will be. If you believe that information provided by the other parent is faulty, I can review the situation and bring any problems to the judge’s attention.
  • Enforcement — Failing to abide by the terms of a child support order is a serious legal and moral violation. Without quick, effective action, the debt can increase quickly, putting your child at risk. I am a strong advocate for mothers and fathers who seek enforcement of child support provisions.
  • Modification — It’s crucial to understand that no matter what changes occur, the paying parent is still required to fulfill the obligation until the order is modified by the court. Even if the recipient parent is not abiding by child custody or visitation arrangements, payments must still be made. When a modification is justified due to a financial shift or some other factor, my firm will initiate the adjustment process immediately.

Though the Tennessee Department of Human Services offers a worksheet to help parents estimate child support obligations, it’s important to obtain personalized advice from a qualified family law attorney. I can help you address special circumstances such as private school tuition and extraordinary medical expenses. No matter how complicated or heated your situation might be, my firm will guide you toward an appropriate result, including negotiating child support through mediation.
