How Can Sean Smallwood, P.A. Resolve Your Child Support Case?
Often, the child support case can resolve sooner than other family law cases if and when all the financial discovery has been completed and the parties involved in the case agree that based on the discovery the guideline support calculations will decide the case without any further back and forth between the parties involved. Your attorney can then prepare the case for finalization and obtain a final order from the court. If, however, one or both of the parties does not agree that the guideline amount will determine the final result then both sides should set the matter for trial and present all the facts to the court for a judicial decision on the case. At trial, your attorney can present the facts to the court in a light most favorable to your position on the case. Florida child support cases are very complicated and you should always consult an experienced Orlando child support attorney.
