Maryland recently adopted new child support guidelines that outline specific obligations and limitations based on complex formulas. At the law office of Steven J. Gaba, I provide comprehensive child support guidance, including enforcement and modification.
As an experienced Rockville child support attorney, I understand that you can deviate from the guidelines through a negotiated agreement. However, having both parties agree to something does not guarantee that the court will approve it. I can evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the best course of action. With decades of experience, I understand how to present agreements to the court to facilitate approval. Additionally, I provide child support modification representation reflecting substantial changes in circumstances.
While Maryland courts follow the best interest of the child standard, they are limited in jurisdiction over many aspects of child support, including private school or college tuition. The collaborative law process can be beneficial for individuals exploring child support options. Under the collaborative process, a team of industry professionals evaluates your situation to determine appropriate support based on the needs of your children.
I have extensive experience representing clients in collaborative divorces, and I am a member of the International Association of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). I understand how the process can also help families with special-needs children. Often, parents have differing opinions on care for such children. I can work closely with mental health professionals, occupational therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists and other experts to help parents reach an agreement.
I have dedicated nearly 20 years of my legal career to helping people throughout Montgomery County in looking at creative resolutions to divorce issues. My family law focus enables me to evaluate situations from every angle to determine the best course of action.
As a dedicated lawyer, I understand that certain situations require litigation or trial. I will vigorously fight to protect my clients’ rights at every stage. As a regularly appointed children’s advocate, I have overseen complex litigation. My extensive trial experience also provides me with insights into how judges approach issues such as child support.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss your unique divorce issues. You can reach me at 301-738-7770. I also accept email inquiries.
