Child Support Obligations

Parents are generally expected to share the financial responsibilities of providing for their child.

At Wise Scheible Barkauskas, we understand that effective financial support of your child may exceed the amounts set out by legislative guidelines. With over 75 years of combined legal experience serving the Calgary, Alberta community, our goal is to make sure your child receives the support he or she needs for a healthy upbringing.

Enforcing Child Support Payments

While we are experienced in fighting our clients' battles in a courtroom, we know that most people don't want a fight - they want a solution. Which is why, when it comes to enforcing child support payments, we approach your matter by finding the right solution for you.

Whether you're the payor or payee, we will examine the dynamics of your family situation and the personalities involved. We will determine if we can effectively come to a satisfactory agreement, or pursue your position in court.

Amending Child Support Payments

The payment amount is generally based on your child's specific needs and you and your ex-partner's financial abilities. However, as needs change over time, payment amounts may be re-evaluated and amended.

Generally speaking, payments last until the child becomes an independent adult. However, there are other factors that may cause the payments to end early, or to continue into the future.

At Wise Scheible Barkauskas, we are dedicated to making sure that, whatever changes occur in your child's life, your parental obligations are protected.
