Finding Fair And Agreeable Solutions

Having time to spend with your children, and the resources to care for them, is vital to most parents. A divorce or legal separation can make it difficult to move forward with your life and be an effective parent. It's important that you establish clear guidelines regarding child support to help you care for your child.

Rosalyn W. Otieno has extensive experience when it comes to drafting child support agreements. She listens to her clients and works to find agreeable solutions between all parties involved.

Factors Considered By The Court

State guidelines govern post-divorce child support. These guidelines evaluate the needs of the child and the ability of the parties to meet those needs. Factors that the court can consider in granting child support include:

  • The income of the parents
  • The cost of health insurance for the children
  • Whether there are any work-related or other child care costs
  • If the child has medical expenses or any special needs

We can help you to make sure that the child support arrangement is fair. In addition to initial child support determinations, we also assist clients in modifying existing child support and child custody orders. If the child's needs have changed significantly or the income of one or both parents has changed, the situation may require a child support modification.

Regardless of your situation, we communicate with you to help you fully understand the divorce process. At our law offices in Greenbelt, Maryland, we look after our clients and prepare them for what is to come.
