Child Support

Child support is not about you – it’s about the welfare of your family and ensures your child has the financial support they need to grow up in a safe and healthy environment. It’s important to have an experienced child support lawyer to help provide knowledgeable counsel to bring a positive resolution to your child support case.

​Oregon has standardized guidelines for the calculation of child support which consider many factors including income, percentage of time spent with parent, childcare expenses, and health insurance costs.  Child support orders can be modified to reflect changing circumstances of the children and either parent.

If a parent fails to pay court ordered child support payments, you may need the help of a family law attorney to enforce your child support order.

If you want to change or enforce your child support order, Alexis Bishop Stern can negotiate with your co-parent or their attorney on your behalf.  If a fair agreement cannot be negotiated, she will pursue a modification of the child support order on your behalf in court.

Alexis will provide professional and confidential counsel to help you resolve your legal issues regarding child support.
