Child Support, the Domestic Relations Office and Enforcement

In Pennsylvania, child support is determined by a series of guidelines and can be estimated by using a child support calculator. However, an experienced attorney can do more than just plug in the numbers. The law permits judges some discretion in special circumstances. At Foreman & Caraciolo, we do an in-depth analysis of the situation. Often, we discover that child support amounts under the guidelines should be raised or lowered in a way that is more favorable for our clients.

Child Support Modification and Enforcement

Our experienced attorneys also assist in issues of modification, enforcement and collection of child support. The process for obtaining a child support modification is substantially similar to the process of establishing child support in the first place. You must petition the court to modify the child support amount because of changed circumstances, which include:

  • Relocation
  • Job loss
  • Change in income
  • Additions to a family

We help you file the child support modification petition and work with the court to advocate on your behalf. If the court recognizes your changed circumstance as a sufficient justification for modifying your child support amount, they will grant your request and the amount will be modified.

When child support is not paid, your frustration can be overwhelming. We handle child support enforcement to relieve your stress. While many state agencies can aid in child support collection, we have the resources to go beyond — often finding solutions for people when they thought no solutions were possible.
