Child Support Lawyer Missoula Montana
The Importance of Child Support
Food, school supplies, clothing, equipment for hobbies and sports, educational costs, medical bills for a broken arm, and dues for Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts– when it comes to raising a child it can feel like there’s always another bill or unexpected cost just around the corner.
Raising a child can be the most rewarding experience of your life, but without adequate financial resources, it can be incredibly stressful and challenging.
That’s why child support agreements between parents are so important. Child support agreements help require that each parent contributes a fair amount. They are also a legal contract that can be used to protect the rights of parents and children should one parent not meet his or her obligations under the terms of the child support agreement.

Creating Child Support Agreements
Child support agreements are often determined as part of the divorce process. The lawyers at the Judnich Law Office will help you understand how child support payments are calculated in Montana. We will also help you understand the amount of child support you can expect to receive or pay.
In Montana, child support is guided by calculations that are set by state law. We use state of the art computer software to assist in this calculation to ensure any children of a marriage will receive their fair child support.
When we calculate child support we usually:
- Interview the child and parent
- Review financial affidavits
- Hire a private investigator to ensure all information is accurate
We’ll represent you throughout the process and will always have your best interests, and the best interests of your children in mind. You can trust us to help create a fair child support agreement for you and your family.
Recovering Back Child Support Payments
Has the other party in your child support agreement fallen behind in his or her payments? At Judnich Law Office, we can help you recover the child support payments due to you and your child.
We’ll start by reviewing the child support agreement in place, your receipts and payment records, and then explain your best options for recovering missed child support payments. This may involve garnishing wages or other legal actions, depending on the circumstances of your case.
If you’re not receiving child support payments, your rights, and the rights of your children, are being violated. At Judnich Law, we’ll work to make sure that your children have the financial resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
