Child Support

Vetrano | Vetrano & Feinman LLC’s child support lawyers in Philadelphia and all surrounding counties  are experienced at helping parents understand and deal with child support matters. When parents separate they have an obligation to support their children until they are graduated from high school or age 18, whichever is later. Pennsylvania has adopted support guidelines to determine the amount of child support a parent should pay based on the custody schedule and the parents’ incomes from all sources. In order to protect the children’s rights to support from their parents, the custodial parent must file a complaint with the domestic relations office. Contact our child support lawyers for advice and counsel on support and child custody.

Child Support Lawyers in Philadelphia and All Surrounding Counties

A Vetrano | Vetrano & Feinman child support lawyer in Philadelphia and all surrounding counties will explain the child support law that is detailed in the Pennsylvania Support Guidelines. Such guidelines are based on the idea that the children of separated or divorced parents should receive the same proportion of parental income as the children living in households with both parents. Parents pay basic child support based on the custody schedule. In addition to the basic child support, parents share, in proportion to their incomes, the children’s unreimbursed medical and dental expenses, extraordinary special needs of the children, private school tuition, and at times, for lessons and other extra activities of the children as agreed by the parents. Sometimes, during the separation, a parent may reside in the marital home subject to a high mortgage payment. The guidelines address when a mortgage payment is excessive so that the divorcing couple can share the large payment between them until the divorce is granted.
