Child Support

Birmingham Child Support Attorney – Serving Shelby, Jefferson and surrounding counties in Alabama

Alabama Rule of Judicial Administration 32, known commonly as Rule 32, details the calculation of child support. Even though this calculation is fairly straightforward, an experienced Alabama child support lawyer can guide you through the process.

While it is true that the Rule 32 calculation of child support is formulaic, there are several variables that an experienced attorney must fill out correctly so an accurate number is reached. At the office of Brad J. Latta, Attorney at Law, we strive to educate our clients on the variables in the Rule 32 equation, including:

  • Health care needs
  • Gross income
  • Health insurance premiums
  • Child care costs
  • Split custody

Even with these variables and the straightforward nature of the child support calculation, individuals sometimes find it necessary to deviate from the Rule 32 number. Deviations are possible, but there must be a very compelling reason for the change. Reasons for deviating include:

  • Extraordinary costs of transportation for purposes of visitation
  • College education expenses

Our firm is known for thorough preparation and detailed investigations. We strive to learn everything about our clients’ finances to better help them through the process of calculating child support. We have experience representing both sides in disputes, such as when one parent thinks he or she is paying too much and the other parent thinks he or she is not getting enough. We understand both sides and work to ensure the best possible outcome no matter which side we represent.

We serve areas such as: Mobile, Daphne, Fairhope, Foley, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and more in Birmingham and surrounding counties. Schedule a consultation with a lawyer at our firm if you have questions about child support modifications or child support enforcement.
