Turkish Child Support Law
Turkish Child Support is the right of the child. It’s not your right. It’s not your spouse’s right. So when you think about Turkish Child Support, think about your child benefiting from it, not anyone else. But you need to make sure you are either paying or receiving the right child support amount. Child support helps to ensure that financial needs of your child are met. Turkish Child support is a very complex area of law simply because children have so many different expenses. And parents need to work and earn enough money to support them. If a parent chooses not to work or pay support, he or she can face extreme consequences for such decision.
Our award-winning firm specializes in Turkish Child Support matters. Our experienced Istanbul child support lawyers have earned a stellar reputation for our cutting-edge approach to child support law and for our creative strategies. Our 90% success rate in 2014 and 2015 speaks for itself.
Child Support in Turkey
You need to pay child support if your child resides with the other parent and has custody of the child. The amount of monthly child support is calculated based on your gross income. Additionally, your child may have special expenses that you may be responsible for. As a stepparent of a child, you also may be ordered to pay child support upon separation from your spouse. Monthly child support pays for daily costs of food, shelter and other basics. Other things such as swimming classes, tutoring or daycare are special expenses.
Child Support & Special & Extraordinary Expenses
The amount of child support for special and extraordinary expenses is based on the incomes of each parent. Special and extraordinary expenses include childcare, extra-curricular activities, college tuition, tutoring, medical expenses and anything else you and your spouse agree to. But there is much more you need to know.
Changing or Cancelling Child Support
Our Child Support Lawyers and the law understand that life is not static. It provides a framework for changing or cancelling child support. In order to qualify for a change in child support, you must demonstrate a material change in your circumstances. Until you obtain a court order that changes your current child support obligations, you must continue to pay what you currently owe. Therefore, if you are experiencing financial hardship, you should speak to our experienced child support lawyers now.
Enforcing Child Support
You rely on child support to pay your child’s expenses. Missed or delayed payments can cause substantial financial hardship. Our family lawyers can force a parent to pay child Support, if they don’t pay it voluntarily. When and what type of action to take depends upon the amount owed, the parent’s payment history and her or his current circumstances.
Turkish Legal Grounds for Divorce
Legal grounds for dissolution of marriage are divided into two groups: special and general. Sections 161 to 166 of the Turkish Civil Law Code define those legal grounds as follows: the special legal grounds are adultery, deliberate attempt to kill, maltreatment, humiliating behavior, committing a crime, unreasonable behavior, desertion, mental disease; the general legal grounds are incompatibility, coming to a mutual agreement on divorce, and living apart for three years after an application for dissolution of marriage has been denied by the court. Once a Family Court makes its decision, it can be appealed at First Instance Appeal Court (Bolge Istinaf Mahkemesi) after that it can be appealed at Turkish Supreme Court (Yargitay).
