- Enforce child support orders

Child support guidelines
Virginia law establishes general child support guidelines. We can help you understand the basis and structure of these guidelines and how they apply to you. We can help you obtain support payments that best fit your financial circumstances and which most appropriately provide for your child’s needs.
Child support settlements through mediation
Through the structured process of mediation, couples can put aside their differences and focus on the one objective that they tend to agree on — their children’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that enable both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. We can guide the process toward equitable solutions.
Litigation of child support
In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. We methodically prepare for litigation to achieve the most equitable support arrangement for your child.
Enforcement of child support
If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need help to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. At the office of Hennessy-Reveley & Associates we guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.
Modification of child support
Financial problems might put you in a different financial situation than when you and your spouse divorced. However, you must continue to pay child support until the court modifies your order. We can help you expeditiously process a modification of your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.
