Child Support

Child Support Is Crucial To Your Child’s Well-Being

Financial concerns are among the most hotly contested issues in family law, and unfortunately, child support is no exception. Even though child support is the right of the child, it is not uncommon for parents to argue over the amount.


If you need assistance with child support, speak with an Alabama family law attorney. At Vella & King, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have more than 40 years of collective experience. We represent mothers and fathers whether they are married or unmarried. Our extensive experience allows us to protect the child’s right to child support while also ensuring that one parent is not being treated unfairly.

What You Can Expect In Child Support Cases

In Alabama, there is a statutory formula used to calculate the amount of child support payments. This is what the court will follow when determining child support in the majority of cases. If there are extraordinary circumstances such as the high net worth of a parent and/or a lifestyle the children are accustomed to, payments may be set higher.


Typically, child support lasts until the child is 19 years old, so it is important to have an attorney on your side when the amount is calculated. It is also important to work with an experienced attorney in cases that involve the following:

  • Modification of child support 
  • Enforcement of child support
  • Establishing paternity so child support can begin


The attorneys at Vella & King, Attorneys at Law, understand the challenges that sometimes arise in child support cases. We will be on your side throughout the process, explaining your rights and options from start to finish.
