Prioritizing Your Children’s Financial Needs  


If you are unable to meet your child support obligations, there are steps that you can take to modify child support; however, you must be able to show that there has been a material change in circumstances. Only the court can modify the original order, so it is important that you address the issue as soon as possible. If you miss payments, the other parent could take legal action to enforce the order.

Whether you are the primary caregiver for your children and don’t have sufficient earning power to meet all of their financial needs or are the primary wage earner and are concerned about being overcharged for child support, Ms. Harris, is a reliable and accessible family lawyer in Maryland who will faithfully prioritize your child’s financial interest for the court.  

To establish child support, Maryland Courts use a calculation based on both parents’ gross income, the number of overnights with each parent and the number of children involved. The court will provide credit for health insurance premiums paid on behalf of the child, extraordinary medical expenses over $250.00, work-related childcare expenses, and transportation expenses.  

Child Support

Parents are responsible for the financial and emotional well-being of their children until the child graduates from high school, whether the parents are married or not.
