The court may order spousal support or family support alongside, instead of, or in combination with child support to provide financial support to one of the parties. Often times in any family case and specifically in divorces there might be a large difference in the income, capacity to earn, and valuable assets between the parties. There is usually one party who has a much higher income, or ability to have a larger income, or much more in assets as opposed to the opposing party. In situations such as this is it may be difficult or scary to maintain your lifestyle or even your basic necessities upon separating from your partner. For someone who needs assistance in maintaining their lifestyle and meeting their basic necessities it is important to properly petition the court for financial support orders, ensure they are properly established, and have them enforced if necessary.
In cases where a person is being sued for child support, spousal support, or family support it is extremely important they respond properly, defend their rights, and ensuring the court considers your position and any concerns you may have.

It is important that when you anticipate child support orders or the moment you receive notice that you look for professional help and representation.
