Oregon Child Support Lawyer

Both parents are expected to contribute to the emotional, physical and financial well-being of their children. In a divorce or legal separation, the court can order either parent to pay child support. This decision is based on many factors, including:

  • Each parent's assets and earning history
  • The physical, emotional and educational needs of the child
  • The parents' potential earning capacity
  • The financial needs of other dependents
  • Social Security or veterans benefits paid to the child
  • Reasonable necessities of living for each parent

Child support is determined by a child support calculator in Oregon. Deviations from the standard child support guidelines are allowed for specific and compelling reasons, but the laws were written to limit deviations.

Attorney Stephen J. Bedor can help you establish, enforce or modify court-ordered child support. To discuss your case with an experienced family law attorney, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. We represent clients from throughout the Portland area in child support issues.
