Strong Advocacy For Child Support Matters
Child support is for the financial benefit of children after their parents’ divorce or breakup. But money matters are emotionally charged. As a parent with much at stake, you need sound legal counsel.
I am renowned lawyer Debra Opri. I concentrate my practice in divorce and family law. For over 28 years, my firm Opri & Associates has represented parents in the Los Angeles area, from high earners and celebrities to everyday people.
Initial Determination Of Child Support
- Time-sharing (percentage of parenting time)
- Incomes of each parent
- Accustomed lifestyle of the child
- Day care expenses and health insurance
- Camps, travel, tutoring and other extras
- Private school or college tuition
My role is to ensure that the initial level of child support is fair, sufficient and based on accurate information. I can knowledgeably address high-income cases exceeding California’s statutory guidelines.
Post-Decree Child Support Issues
A change in circumstances may justify child support modification, such as a new job, a health crisis, or a switch in custody arrangements. I can also deal with child support enforcement, including contempt of court hearings and liens, levies or wage garnishment to collect child support arrears.
