Helping Kansas Families in Child Support Disputes for Over Thirty Years
Child support disputes can be highly contentious and may impact you and your child’s financial well-being. Child support disputes may also color your custody, parenting time, and visitation negotiations which in turn may derail any efforts put forth by you and the other parent to reach an agreement on a parenting plan.
If you are a parent contemplating the payment of child support, you may be experiencing stress and anxiety over the prospect of juggling a child support order with your other expenses and financial obligations. If you are a parent seeking child support from the other parent, it is normal to worry that you will not have sufficient resources to provide for your child or to fear the financial challenges you might face if the other parent does not fulfill their obligation.
Whether you are establishing a new child support order or modifying an existing order, experienced Topeka family law attorney Mindy Reynolds can help. Mindy Reynolds, understands the child support system and your concerns. As a former staff attorney with (SRS) the State of Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, (now Department For Children and Families (DCF)), Mindy Reynolds managed a caseload of over 500 cases involving child support enforcement in a geographic area covering seven counties in Western Kansas.
Mindy Reynolds will carefully scrutinize the circumstances of your case; and if you already have a child support order in place, she will re-calculate your child support to determine if you may be eligible for a modification. Mindy Reynolds will also examine all relevant factors in your case in considering whether you may be eligible to receive certain credits and adjustments that may apply to raise or lower the child support.
Whether you are on the paying or the receiving end of a child support order, Mindy Reynolds can help ensure that the child support ordered in your case complies with the Kansas Child Support Guidelines and that you have received all beneficial credits and adjustments for which you may be eligible.
Uninsured Medical Expenses
If you are the parent who takes your child to, and pays the co-pays for, your child’s doctor appointments, prescriptions and the portion of your child’s medical bills not covered by insurance, Mindy Reynolds can help you obtain a court order requiring the other parent to be responsible for a percentage of these expenses.
Child Support Enforcement and Enforcement of Unreimbursed Medical Expenses
If you are not receiving child support for your child as ordered by the court, Mindy Reynolds can help you obtain compliance with the court order. Also if you have an order requiring the other parent to pay a percentage of the uninsured medical expenses and the other parent is refusing to comply with the order, Mindy Reynolds can help you enforce the order and seek reimbursement for the portion of the medical expenses that you paid but that was the other parent’s responsibility.
If you are ordered to pay child support and you have fallen behind in your payments, Mindy Reynolds understands that there are certain facts and circumstances in life that may cause a parent to fall behind and find themselves in arrears. Failure to comply with a child support order can result in severe penalties and aggressive enforcement procedures including wage garnishments, seizure of assets, and even jail time for contempt of court. If you are facing these severe sanctions, Mindy Reynolds may be able to help.
