We have lawyers of various expertise and skills such as a Toronto child support lawyer for those who are locally looking for one. Jag Virk Family Lawyers recognize that going to court is not an easy task. For single parents facing child support hearing, here are some tips from our Toronto child support lawyer on how the prepare.
Make sure to look through your mail one by one to double check and not miss important mails sent by either your lawyer, the lawyer hired by your ex or the court itself. Read it carefully and rest for 30 minutes before reading it for the second time to make sure you did not miss anything or misunderstand information. If you are required to respond, it should be done immediately because putting off things can reflect badly.
When filling out forms to be sent to the court, information provided should be accurate and true. Do not manipulate information or alter your financial records in order to limit the child support you have to pay. This can be easily revealed by the judge and you could have a bad record in court.
Make sure to arrive early for the scheduled child support hearing. Do not be late and do not attempt not to attend. The judge will appreciate your timely manner. If your hearing did not start as scheduled, wait a while as there are other cases being heard.
During the hearing, your Toronto child support lawyer will tell you to that the judge will only decide on the financial needs of the child that needs to be paid by the parent. There is no point in opening up other topics such as child custody as the judge does not have the authority to decide or alter these arrangements. Just stay on the topic of the hearing.
