Other Expenses Covered By Child Support Payments

The rules regarding child support payments can seem complex. In Connecticut, child support orders do not cover every single expense associated with raising a child. However, support orders will establish a parent's child support responsibilities, as well as each parent's share of unreimbursed medical expenses.

At BRODER & ORLAND LLC, we can examine your circumstances and give you a frank assessment of your circumstances. We will put together a well-planned strategy in order to obtain the child support you need and deserve.

What Expenses Are Covered By Child Support Orders?

Certain expenses, such as extracurricular activities, are automatically covered in a child support agreement. Payment of these expenses can be a source of disagreement between parents.

At BRODER & ORLAND LLC, our Westport-based law firm represents parents facing these and other complex issues. We have extensive experience representing a broad range of individuals facing these issues, including high income and high net worth individuals.

While unreimbursed medical expenses are not included in child support payments, each parent's share of unreimbursed medical expenses is established in the child support order. Our lawyers are ready to help you negotiate a favorable result.

Skilled In Litigation, Negotiation And Mediation

Ideally, parents can forge consensus as to each parent's share of these expenses. Of course, in the event parents are unable to reach an agreement, the courts can intervene. At BRODER & ORLAND LLC, our attorneys have successfully served clients in litigation, mediation and other forums. Our overarching objective will be to seek a resolution that protects your interests now and in the future.
