Broder & Orland LLC is dedicated to obtaining fair resolutions to child support and alimony. Our firm represents parents who will be receiving child support as well as parents who will be responsible for paying support. In Connecticut, child support is governed by the Child Support Guidelines. These Guidelines consider several factors in addition to each parent's income. Individuals with higher income may fall outside the Guidelines. There are other factors that require a deviation from these Guidelines, requiring individually suited obligations.
Our attorneys work tenaciously to seek favorable results for clients seeking alimony as well as clients who may be responsible for paying alimony. The amount and duration of alimony is determined by considering numerous statutory factors.
We appreciate that many income earners are understandably protective about the fruits of their labor. Most seek a fair resolution but require the skillful representation and expertise we offer in preserving income, especially in higher tax brackets.
On the other hand, in some cases one spouse has reason to believe the other spouse is not providing a full disclosure of income. In these instances, our firm has access to experts including forensic accountants and investigators, who can identify undisclosed income.
In some cases we work to attribute income or an earning capacity to an individual who may not be accurately disclosing income or who is under-earning.
Changes to Support and Alimony
After a divorce judgment has been finalized, it may be possible to modify child support and alimony agreements based upon a substantial change in circumstances. A common example is when an individual has experienced a job change or increased needs. In many cases it is necessary to establish an earning capacity if income has been eliminated or reduced.
