In Southeastern, PA, clients of Attorney Jack A. Rounick need to understand the importance of having the appropriate contracts to help in deciding the financial support necessary from one party to the other. In many instances, these financial obligations to the other party may include spousal support and child support. These are payments made from one individual to the other to provide financial support as needed. Child support payments are made to help in the cost necessary to raise a child, and the custodial parent is often the one who receives payment from the non-custodial parent. Spousal support is often given for a specific length of time to help the other party in getting on their feet and helping them in becoming financially independent. This often occurs when a party was a stay-at-home parent and gave up a career in order to raise the children during the course of the marriage. It can be used for education or for living expenses until the individual is able to get a job that can support them.
The financial obligation from one party to the other is often determined by the income of both individuals and the percentage to which they contributed to the marriage. The numbers are determined in a specific manner taking into account the income of each party, the number of children, who contributes to the cost of medical and daycare, and other situations which may increase or reduce the amount of support given to the other party.

At the Law Offices of Jack A. Rounick, LLC, we focus on our clients and their specific situations to give them the assistance they need to continue to be successful after their marriage or separation.
