Support Attorneys in Erie, PA

Support is a broad term incorporating the subunits of child support, spousal support, and alimony. Our family law attorney at Sebald & Hackwelder - in Erie, PA - will help settle your child support, spousal support or alimony settlement.

When parties seek a divorce and one party is at an economic disadvantage to the other, a spousal support award may be necessary during the pendency of the litigation. Thereafter, an award of alimony may also be awarded if the facts and circumstances show that the equitable distribution award is insufficient based upon the economic circumstances of the parties. 

Child support applies to married and non-married parents and the responsibility is mandatory until that child reaches the age of 18. Child support can involve a slew of unique factors, but in every case the income of the parties, their respective earning capacities, and other sources of income are considered and inputted into a guideline formula. Child support can also trigger other proceedings such as a paternity determination.

Support is a complex area and our family law attorney, Pat Kelley, has the necessary experience to ensure that your support obligation is fair and reasonable under the circumstances.

If you feel that you have a child support issue, please contact Pat Kelley directly to ascertain your rights and remedies.
