There are Two Kinds of Support

Family law cases may trigger two different kinds of support payments – child support and spousal support.  In a divorce, both types of support are possible.  Child support can be ordered in other family law cases.

Support payments are made from one party to the other, usually on a monthly basis.  Support payments can be collected by garnishment. Failure to pay when due can result in contempt of court proceedings.

What Our Clients Say

Avery W

"David has done nothing but incredible work."

“My attorney is David Collins. Although I feel like everyone in this office cares about and works on my case. David has done nothing but incredible work. He supports me as a mother and fights for my rights nonstop. He cares about my opinion on all steps we take and always consults me before making moves. I’m very glad I hired him. Especially since all the work he does, to me, is worth way more than the super affordable prices I’m actually paying.”

"Modern Family Law made a very difficult process so much easier..."

“I’m fortunate that I had a very amicable divorce so, when I had some questions concerning, laws, paperwork, etc., I turned to Modern Family Law and was connected with their attorney. She was patient, knowledgeable, thorough and supportive. Getting divorced is not fun and not understanding all the legal mumbo jumbo makes it just that much worse and she made sure to explain everything to me so I understood what was going on and she was always available when I had questions. Modern Family Law made a very difficult process so much easier and a little less painful. Thank you Modern Family Law!”

"Karlee got the job done in an efficient manner while keeping costs on point."

“Until I met Karlee, I had lost all hope. I went through three attorneys in a highly contentious custody case. My ex-husband’s attorney was not a family law attorney, making an incredibly sensitive and emotional situation more difficult to navigate. Karlee got the job done in an efficient manner while keeping costs on point. She listened to my frustrations and what I wanted to accomplish and she made it happen. If you need an attorney who is honest and has a thorough knowledge of not only family law, but other aspects and understanding, this is the firm to go with. They are not just empty promises. They make it happen!”
