A primary duty for any parent is to support their child’s health and development in every possible way. When you’re a primary custodial parent, this means keeping a roof over their head as well as taking them to school and activities, but for a the non-primary caregiver, this means something different.
By law, child support is defined as the direct financial responsibility of the non-custodial parent to any involved children through payments to the custodial parent. Tulsa child support attorney Frank Hagedorn handles every aspect of the child support process, regardless of it’s through drafting an agreement or enforcing the agreement.
