Amundson Law Office Provides Spousal Maintenance and Child Support Lawyer Services
Amundson Law Office, a law firm based in Eagan, MN that provides divorce and family law services, wants to inform people that they also offer Dakota County child support attorney services, including spousal maintenance issues. This firm is focused on family law issues, especially divorce, and offers a free consultation so that an individual going through the difficult and often emotional process can comprehend how the law applies to his or her particular situation. Spousal maintenance and child support issues are vital issues during divorce and some issues may remain after the divorce. That is why the firm is ready to provide the necessary legal services for those who have child support and spousal maintenance concerns after divorce.
In Minnesota, the law on child support is based on the idea that a child has the right to benefit from the income of both parents, regardless of whether the parent is custodial or non-custodial. Therefore, they are concerned more about the income of the non-custodial parent rather than the specific need of the child. And even if the custodial parent happens to be well-off, or even a billionaire, the non-custodial parent is still mandated to pay child support according to Minnesota law. For this reason, Minnesota’s child support guidelines are based on the income of the non-custodial parent. Although there are many factors to be considered by the court of law in determining the actual amount of child support required, in most cases, the amount is calculated based on child support guidelines. Basically, the amount of child support is based on the non-custodial parent’s net income and the number of children, with a cap of $6,975.
Amundson Law Office offers free initial consultation for those who are facing spousal maintenance and child support issues and require legal help. Previously, spousal maintenance or alimony, was awarded to stay-at-home mothers. However, the courts had to reexamine spousal maintenance in view of the rise of dual-income households and changes in society. At present, courts have to make sure that they evaluate the specific financial situation of each divorcing couple rather than base their decisions on archaic gender roles.
In some cases, child support and spousal maintenance issues are “reserved,” which means that they will be considered at a later time and date. This will require additional legal assistance. For those who are being presented with a proposed settlement where child support and spousal maintenance will be reserved, it is advisable to check with an experienced lawyer to make sure it is the best option for their particular situation.
