Understanding Child Support Laws

Child support laws in North Carolina allow for two different ways for child support cases to begin. Child support cases can be pursued through the civil court or criminal court. Typically, child support is pursued through the civil court with the help of your Fayetteville family law attorney. In some cases, a child support order can be issued with the criminal court. It is considered a misdemeanor crime for either party to refuse to provide substantial support for their children. Support from the defendant to the plaintiff can be ordered from the criminal court.

Both parents have a responsibility to provide financial support for their child. Child support is typically paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. Under some circumstances, however, responsibility for child support lies upon one parent. Responsibility for child support may even rest upon someone else, such as grandparents. Child support guidelines are often outlined by the civil court, but can be adjusted when a judge deems it necessary. As your Fayetteville family law attorney, we can handle your case with the level of aggression necessary to protect your rights.
