Established Family Law Attorney to assist with Child Support Matters
Respected law firm in the middle Mississippi area puts children first
Raising a child involves all types of expenses, both predictable and unexpected. Children are entitled to financial support from both parents, whether parents are married or not, but if too heavy a burden is placed on one parent, the child will be the one to suffer. At Jackson Law Firm, PLLC, we strive to negotiate and enforce fair child support arrangements. We help clients in Mississippi to demonstrate the needs of their children, as well as each parent’s financial ability. Our priority is to reach a fair agreement that protects client rights and helps their child to grow up safely and securely.
Dedicated counselor helps parents reach fair child support arrangements
At Jackson Law Firm, PLLC,, we are experienced in all family law matters, including child support. Drawing on experience and knowledge of case law, we help parents:
- Negotiate child support through mediation
- Litigate child support issues
- Enforce child support orders via contempt orders
- Modify child support orders
We will thoroughly explain child support guidelines and how they apply. It is our goal to keep clients informed and empowered throughout the legal process, so that they know their rights and those of their children.
Mediator also helps child support settlements
Children fare best when their parents can be cordial and respectful of one another. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can often put aside their differences and focus on a topic on which they tend to agree — the importance of their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Through skilled negotiation, we can guide the process toward equitable solutions that often save time and expense.
Let Janice Jackson go to court on behalf of you and your children
In some cases, litigation is necessary for a child to receive fair financial support from both parents. We carefully prepare for litigation to achieve an equitable arrangement for the child. In addition, if a spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, assistance may be needed to collect the money that rightfully belongs to the child. And when financial problems or the changing needs of children alter our client's circumstances, we can petition the court for a modification to the child support order.
If help is needed with seeking, negotiating or enforcing a fair child support order, enlisting a trusted family law attorney can increase the odds of achieving the best possible outcome. Call Janice Jackson at 601-982-9797.
