Child Support

Warren Child Support Attorney

At the Biviano Law Firm, we represent custodial and non-custodial parents in child support matters throughout northeast Ohio. We counsel parents in Ohio child support guidelines. When a family's income is over $150,000, the process is more complicated and requires effective negotiation in and out of court.

State Child Support Guidelines

The State of Ohio has established statutory schedules that guide parents and courts in child support matters. These state guidelines consider family income and other factors to determine child and medical support awards. Ohio child support guidelines are based on two types of worksheets. One applies to sole custody cases (with and without shared parenting orders), and the other is used in split custody arrangements where there is more than one child, and each parent has custody of one or more children.

State guidelines take into account all sources of income received by the mother and father including average salaries, overtime wages, bonuses, self-employment income, interest, and dividends. The worksheets balance parental income against certain other financial factors such as:

  • Daycare expenses
  • Medical support payments for minor children
  • Local taxes
  • Union dues
  • Previously existing spousal support or child support orders

Family Incomes Over $150,000

In divorce cases involving family incomes of over $150,000 a year, the determination of child support awards must be made on a case-by-case basis taking into consideration the best interests of the children. At Biviano Law Firm, we have represented clients in complicated divorce, child custody, and child support matters for over 34 years. We represent professionals and business owners in complex family law matters involving:

Best Interests of the Child

Our Warren child support firm helps families establish effective agreements that provide for the best interests of the children. We negotiate child support agreements that consider the expenses associated with education (including private schools and college funds), sporting activities, quality healthcare, daycare, clothing and special needs.

Child Support Modifications and Enforcements

When there is significant change in the material circumstances of a family, modification of a child support order may be necessary. At Biviano Law Firm, we represent clients in Ohio child support modifications and child support enforcement matters involving delinquent child support payments by non-custodial parents or so-called "deadbeat dads or moms."
