One of the most important jobs of a family law lawyer is to protect individuals with respect to obtaining child and spousal support and obtaining an agreement or court order for support and knowing how to properly enforce the support, if required. 

Important aspects of support include knowing when to vary a support order or agreement, the entitlement an individual has to claim special or extraordinary expenses, when an individual is entitled to obtain support on a retroactive basis and understanding when you are entitled to receive child support if your children are attending post-secondary school.
