Arnold Law & Mediation

Committed Minnesota Child Support Attorney

Protecting the rights of parents and their children to fair financial support
Often, the most pressing issue facing divorcing parents is the welfare of their children. During divorce, your concern for your children’s well-being can increase the anxiety of an already painful experience.  Arnold Law and Mediation protects your children and their financial future as you divide your family into two households. We help parents:
  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Negotiate child support through mediation
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Enforce  child support orders
  • Modify child support orders

Child support guidelines
Minnesota law has established general child support guidelines.  You deserve an attorney that will clearly explain your rights and help you establish the best possible financial arrangement within the framework of these guidelines. Our lawyers can help you structure the receipt or payment of support so you can best secure your and your child’s financial future.

Child support
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising your child. We will uphold your children’s right to receive the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing, while ensuring that the financial burden is divided fairly between both parents.

Child support settlements through mediation
Through the structured process of mediation, you and your spouse put aside your differences and focus on the one point about which you likely agree — that you want the best life for your children. Our skilled negotiators can help you devise a child support plan that equitably divides the financial obligations of raising your children.

Enforcement of child support
If your former spouse fails to abide by legal obligations for your child’s financial support, we lead you through the legal channels to induce the enforcement of your child support order.

Modification of child support
Sometimes the unexpected happens — a lost job or a sudden injury — yet you remain obligated to pay child support despite your changed financial circumstances. In other cases, your former spouse receives a huge financial windfall or promotion, which should contribute toward your children’s upbringing. You deserve an attorney that can successfully obtain a modification of your child support order so your children’s financial support is more fairly shared between you and your former spouse.
