Child Support Attorney Medford Oregon


The Oregon law provides that parents need to financially support their children. In some circumstances, parents must also support college age adults under 21 if they do meet certain requirements. Child support issues can come up in divorce cases, custody cases, paternity cases and modifications of preexisting support orders.

The appropriate level of support is determined using the Oregon Child Support Guidelines which factors include the income of both parents, the number of overnights a parent has with the child, medical insurance costs and child care costs.

Either party may request a review of their child support order to see if the monthly support is appropriate if it has been over 35 months since the date of the last support order. For support orders less than three years old, a substantial change of circumstances will need to be shown by the party seeking a modification before a modification review can be made. Examples of substantial change are a change in the physical custody of a subject child or a disabling injury to a parent with involuntary loss of income.

The law office of James J. Pedrojetti P.C. will work with you to make sure that all of the factors that can result in the best child support award for you and your children are properly addressed.
