Child Support

Kansas and Missouri Child Support Attorney Helps Families Come to Terms

Determining custody in a divorce or paternity case can be one of the hardest experiences a person can go through. The separation and end of any long term partnership are situations that are difficult in many ways: not only is there the upheaval and change of a family’s situation, but there are often emotional, physical and financial stresses involved. And nowhere do tensions rise as much as they do in the area of determining, and enforcing, the payment of child support.

The Kansas City family law attorney Ronald L. Jurgeson, LLC works with your family during the child support process, setting up a fair payment arrangement and working to make sure that it is followed to the letter. Child support is determined by taking a number of factors into account, which includes how much each spouse earns and the cost of living to ensure the child enjoys a similar lifestyle to the one he or she has known.

However, an unpleasant part of the divorce process, and its after-effects, is that what often makes the transition longer and harder is when a parent who has been ordered to pay child support doesn’t follow through. Luckily, there are a number of penalties in place for parents that refuse to pay child support. Lee’s Summit child support lawyer Ronald L. Jurgeson works diligently with parents to ensure that child support payments will be met, and if they aren’t, he works hard to ensure that Child Support Enforcement is notified and takes immediate action.

The states of Kansas and Missouri punish parents who are behind on their past due payments, and ensures that things will be difficult for those who attempt to disobey the court’s order to provide for their child. Child Support Enforcement will come after a delinquent parent, taking actions which include notifying the parent when a payment is missed, freezing wages, and many other ways to make certain that the parent make the payments.

The Kansas City child support attorney Ronald L. Jurgeson makes clear to clients and their spouses or former partners that paying child support in a timely fashion avoids all of these difficult consequences. This guarantees that the child is receiving the financial support that he or she needs for a happy and healthy childhood. Don’t let a “deadbeat” parent prevent your child from receiving the assistance he or she deserves; contact Lee’s Summit child support attorney Ronald L. Jurgeson today at 816-554-6968.
