    Child Support & Alimony


    Strategies to safeguard your interests while meeting your obligations

    Most divorce cases require spouses to resolve the practical details of child support or alimony. That resolution will have an impact on your financial security for a long time to come. At the Cox Law Firm, our spousal and child support attorneys can help you understand the legal considerations behind child and spousal support decisions and pursue a strategy that protects your interests while meeting your obligations.

    Sound advice on Idaho child support issues

    While the Idaho child support guidelines are firm, they follow a formula that can be adjusted — provided you can show good reason for doing so. Among spousal support lawyers in Boise, our firm’s attorneys have a proven track record in litigation, which is a huge asset when it comes to asserting your rights in support cases. At the Cox Law Firm, we can show you what your basic child support payment will be and how your argument stacks up against your spouse’s.

    Plan for the future by considering child support laws

    Keep in mind that health insurance and tax dependent allocation are figured into Idaho child support payments, but day-care expenses are not. When both parents work, adjusting the child support to reflect the reasonable costs of day-care can sometimes present difficulties in determining the original payment obligation.

    Find out whether you’ll be paying or receiving alimony

    The need to pay alimony or spousal maintenance following divorce won't come up in every single case — especially when both spouses have careers and a good chance at financial independence. Short-term alimony can be awarded when the financially weaker spouse needs a year or two of school or job training to re-enter the work force.

    Alimony for indefinite periods is reserved for a nonworking spouse who has little practical chance of generating a secure and sufficient income after a long-term marriage.

    Plan for life after divorce and protect your rights

    Child support and spousal support obligations can greatly affect your financial future. The attorneys with the Cox Law Firm have helped clients reach support agreements, modify support arrangements and enforce compliance on non-paying spouses for more than 21 years. We can ensure that your support obligations are met while protecting your rights to a fair determination.
