Leving firm wins big reduction in child support

      

(YorkPedia Editorial):- Chicago, Jan 29, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving Ltd. won a reduction of thousands of dollars a month in child support, and more, for a loving Chicago-area father.

Attorney Jeffery M. Leving, founder and president of the firm, will talk about the case on the Dads Rights Legal Hour, 9-10 a.m. CST Saturday, Feb. 1, on Power 92.3 FM.

The story starts a few years back with a divorce, and the man agreeing to a substantial child support amount to be taken directly from his paycheck every two weeks. It seemed reasonable at the time: He was doing well financially and he had five kids.

As the years passed, the kids grew up, one by one becoming “emancipated,” which means they’re over 18 and they’ve finished high school. Now only one is still a minor, but the child support garnishment never changed. That’s why the dad contacted the Leving firm.

This dad has always loved and cared about his kids. He has supported his kids financially, emotionally and academically, but at some point, the child support obligation should be reduced

The Leving team filed a motion to modify child support, noting that the law had changed – from a flat percentage of the payer’s net income to a formula that takes into account the payer’s and the recipient’s earnings.

It took several months of perseverance and tough advocacy, but their efforts paid off: They went to court, argued their client’s case an won. Their client got the relief he was seeking – a reduction of thousands a month in child support. Most importantly, the order takes effect retroactive to when the Leving firm filed the request, so as a result, the mother now owes the father a substantial sum that the court ordered her to pay off monthly.

“If your circumstances change, your child support obligation can change.” Leving said. “If you lose your job or have your hours cut back, if your kids reach adulthood, if your child ends up living with you instead of the mother, if the mother gets a boost in her income, or if you have some trouble with the law and you’re locked up, your child support obligation can and should reflect the change in circumstances.”

A child support modification is not automatic, and it’s often a tough case. “But my firm wins cases like this, as we did for this dad, because we know the law, we present the evidence and we make a compelling argument to the judge,” Leving said.
