A Skilled Child Support Lawyer In Bettendorf

An experienced family law attorney can help you evaluate your situation and protect your interests during child support establishment, modification and enforcement hearings.
Safeguarding The Well-Being Of Children And Protecting Parents
The legal team at Tyler & Associates, PC, in Bettendorf, Iowa has extensive experience representing both mothers and fathers in child support matters. Safeguarding the financial well-being of children following a divorce is always a primary concern of families.
In Iowa, child support is determined based on guidelines that take into account incomes of both parents. In addition, the amount of time spent with each parent is taken into account as well as needs, including health insurance and necessary day care costs. In practice, the guidelines mandate that a court considers the net monthly income of both parties when calculating.
The situation becomes more complex if there are other qualified dependents or other issues, including:
- Self-reported (self-employment) income or hidden income
- Variable income
- Unemployment or underemployment
- Extraordinary expenses (private tuition, special services)
- Parenting time adjustment (amount of visitation)
As such, the skill of a knowledgeable attorney becomes extremely beneficial.
