Des Moines Child Support Attorneys
Raising a child can be expensive, especially if parents must support two households instead of one. In Iowa, both parents have a duty to financially support their child, regardless of whether they are married.
The Iowa Child Support Guidelines create a mathematical formula that governs the calculation of most child support obligations in the state. These guidelines are based upon several economic factors, including the income of each parent, the amount of time the child spends with each parent, health insurance and medical expenses, as well as other necessary continuing costs.
At Harding Law Offices, we represent clients both initiating and defending against child support actions. Our Des Moines child support lawyers advocate for clients on issues related to:
