Child Support Makes A Difference In Iowa

Child-Support

Any parent will tell you that children are expensive. Meeting your basic necessities for your child is not always easy, especially when you are on your own. Child support makes this burden easier to bear.

Whether you are facing divorce or are an unmarried parent with questions about support, it is essential to get reliable legal guidance. The same is true if you believe a change in circumstances may justify a child support modification.

While Iowa child support guidelines make determining what you should pay or receive relatively straightforward in some cases, they have changed multiple times in recent years.

Our family law attorneys, Constance Peschang Stannard and David Burbidge, are both accomplished, diligent attorneys prepared to counsel mothers and fathers on all aspects of this important financial issue. We have practiced in Iowa City for decades. As you prepare for the next phase of your life or work to adjust to a major change, our legal team is here to help. You can count on accurate information based on in-depth knowledge of current Iowa law.

Do You Understand Child Support?

Iowa has a child support laws for just about every situation. They range from very simple to highly complicated. A few basic points of information about Iowa child support include:

  • Whenever one parent has sole physical custody, the other will be ordered to pay child support — and payment in full is a legal obligation enforceable by measures including ordering employers to withhold wages and driver's license suspension.
  • Payment of child support is also required in many shared custody arrangements, based on a comparison of parents' net incomes and a range of other factors.
  • Every child support order is enforceable as it stands until formally modified by the appropriate court, making it essential to act promptly if you believe the order should be modified.
