The Proper Determination Of Child Support

Military servicemembers in Missouri and Illinois have to go through divorce proceedings in state family court, just like civilians do. In many military divorce situations involving children, child support is ordered by a court. In some cases, child support is determined based on a formula that takes into account factors like custody arrangements and both spouses’ incomes.

If you are anticipating a divorce or you are already divorced, you may need help obtaining fair treatment with regard to child support. A lawyer experienced with military divorce can help you understand and protect your rights when it comes to your children and your money.
