Real Support Improves Childrens’ Opportunities
Children who enjoy the support of both parents tend to have a better start in life. A Muskogee family law attorney can help make sure your child gets the support they deserve. Oklahoma courts try with each child support case to make sure the child’s best interests are taken into account when it comes to child support. Your Muskogee attorney can help you represent your child’s best interests to the court from your perspective as your child’s parent.
Whether you’re beginning the divorce process or have already split up and need to change child support or child custody arrangements, you need to talk with a Muskogee child support attorney about how to financially prepare your child for success. A child support order from an Oklahoma court must be followed to the letter of the law.

Muskogee County judges will review parents’ gross incomes, possible investments, savings and many other economic indicators when making decisions about a child support order. Quite often, the court will then determine how much child support the non-custodial parent will need to contribute for not only living expenses, but also child care, medical care, dental care and many other child raising expenses. If the support order isn’t cutting it, and you and your child are struggling, it’s time to talk with one of our Muskogee child support attorneys.
How Long Does Child Support Last?
Most people think that child support runs out when the child gets to be 18 years old, but that’s not always the case in Oklahoma. As a Muskogee child support attorney we can guide you through the many statues involving child support. For example, there is an Oklahoma child support statute that says children with certain disabilities can receive financial assistance beyond 18 years of age. A child is also entitled to support by the parents until he or she graduates from high school or is enrolled in school until the age of 20 years, whichever occurs first.
