Child Support

Home / Practice Areas/ Family Law/ Child Support

Louisiana has very specific guidelines for child support. These guidelines are based on the financial needs of the child as well as the income of both parents. These guidelines are strictly adhered to by the courts in the interest of being fair to both parents. We understand that inevitably the parent receiving support payments will feel they are too low, while the parent paying them will almost always feel they are too high.

If your former spouse is not complying with a child support order, you may need to go into court to enforce compliance. We can help with these issues as well as requesting a recalculation when necessary. Whether you are in the process of drawing up a child support agreement, need help enforcing compliance with the child support order or feel the payment you are receiving are too low contact the Law Office of Nicholas J. Muscarello at (985) 345-1010 today.
