Glendale Child Support Attorneys
Child support is a hot topic among divorced or separated parents and with good reason. Raising a child without the financial contributions of both parents makes parenting even more difficult than it already is. At Baghdaserians Law Group, Inc., our Glendale child support attorneys are aggressive in their child support advocacy efforts. Like the state of California, our team frowns on parents who try to shirk their child support obligations.
Raising a child is a costly endeavor. In fact, the USDA reports that raising a child from birth through adulthood in a middle-income household costs roughly $267,000, and that does not include any college expenses. For that reason, it is vital that both parents take their responsibility to support their children seriously. Our Glendale child support attorneys work hard to help clients who are owed child support collect it.
Our primary attorney, Patrick Baghdaserians, is a family law specialist. Our team has more than a decade of experience serving clients with all types of family law issues, including difficulty collecting child support.

Glendale Child Support
As a parent, you should not have to go alone when it comes to providing food, shelter, clothing, and other expenses for your child. If you do not yet have a court order in place to enforce support from the child’s other parent, do not delay. The sooner you file for support, the faster you can start receiving the support to which your child is entitled.
If you have an active child support case and the other parent refuses to pay, penalties may be assessed against that parent. This can include fines, loss of driving privileges, and jail time. In fact, when an individual’s child support arrearage reaches $10,000 or more, the person can be charged with a felony offense and be sentenced to up to two years in jail. The state of California can also garnish the wages of parents who get behind on their child support obligations and offset the payments to go to the custodial parent.
Our Glendale child support attorneys also help clients who know (or suspect) that their child’s other parent has started making more money. The attorney can ask the court to modify the order so that it better reflects the other parent’s income, as much as the law permits.
