Child Support

Family Law

Whether or not you are establishing child support as part of a divorce or paternity action, or need to modify child support after your initial court order, Garrison Law Firm can assist you through the process.

Child support may need to change throughout the years because of a change in your circumstances or those of the other parent or children. Employment changes, an increase or decrease in work related childcare costs, a dramatic change to the parenting time schedule, or attending college can all be reasons to modify child support.

There is a general formula that Indiana uses to calculate child support. Contact Martha McDermott at for more information or assistance in establishing or modifying child support.
