Ensuring Financial Stability 

Are you facing challenges in securing or modifying child support?

It can be overwhelming to understand the legal processes, especially when dealing with uncooperative ex-partners or complex custody arrangements. But you’re not alone.

At Plekan Law, we understand the emotional toll of struggling with child support issues. Our mission is to guide you through every step with compassion and clarity, ensuring that your child’s needs are met.

How Does Child Support Work?

Child support laws in North Carolina can be challenging, but understanding the basics can make a significant difference.

From calculating payments to enforcing orders across state lines, knowing your rights and responsibilities is crucial.

Whether you’re a custodial or non-custodial parent, learning about the legal processes and options available can help you secure the support your child needs.


  • How is child support calculated?
    Child support in North Carolina is determined using guidelines that consider both parents’ incomes, custody arrangements, and specific needs of the child. Online calculators can help estimate the amount.
  • What are my options if the other parent isn’t paying?
    If the other parent fails to pay, you can contact the Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSE) or file a motion for contempt with the court to enforce the order.
  • Can I modify an existing child support order?
    Yes, you can request a modification if there has been a significant change in circumstances, such as a substantial change in income or the needs of the child.
  • Do I need a court order to receive child support?
    While informal agreements are possible, a court order ensures enforceability and clarity, making it easier to address non-payment issues legally.
  • What happens if the parent or child lives in a different state?
    Interstate cases are handled through cooperation between states. The CSE can assist in locating the non-custodial parent and enforcing child support orders across state lines.
