Here at the Law Offices of Carol E Cardonick, we operate a family law practice that's based in Willow Grove, PA. We're prepared to advise clients who have questions about a variety of issues, including child support and child custody agreements and orders. We also offer guidance to parents who are trying to establish their right to visitation with their children. You can even come to us if you have concerns about determining paternity.
We can explain how you can seek support for a child. In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, there are firm guidelines that lead to a calculation of child support. The court looks into how much net income both parents have. The next set of issues to be examined is the cost of caring for a child, especially in terms of health insurance payments, out-of-pocket medical care expenses, and the need for child care. In nearly all cases, if there is a significant deviation in the agreed upon amount a judge must sign off on it.
The state also allows recovery of child support payments for unmarried parents and guardians. If there are questions regarding paternity, we can guide you through the process of requesting a DNA test. Once paternity is established, we can also work with you, the other parent, and the court to develop visitation rights.
We can also consult with parents who are seeking enforcement actions or modifications to support agreements. If payments have not been made, our lawyer can assist you with filing a contempt motion. She can also help you deal with situations where the payor is behind on payments due to job loss or other major life circumstances.
Our law office is open every weekday. We're available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 215-830-9909. If you're looking for a family law attorney to represent your interests, get in touch with us at the Law Offices of Carol E Cardonick, P.C.

Our firm offers guidance regarding common family law issues that can come up as you get a divorce. We can help both partners arrive at agreements regarding the custody and support of their children, and we can also help you determine the division of assets, taxes owed, and liabilities. Our practice can even assist you with seeking a determination for alimony.
The court will want to look at a number of factors before deciding who pays what. There will be questions about the length of the marriage, and the judge will also want to know the earning potential of both people, including their educational and personal histories.
Our lawyer can provide advice that's specifically tailored to the needs of individuals with a high net worth. This can include helping create prenuptial agreements and dealing with those terms if a divorce happens. If you're looking to sign such an agreement, we'll do our best to help you see that everything is fully disclosed and agreed upon. If you wish to challenge a prenuptial agreement after a divorce, we can help you determine whether your former spouse misrepresented key details before signing or did not honor the terms of the agreement.
