Child Support

Assertive attorney dedicated to your child’s well-being

After divorce, the division of your family into two households substantially affects your children — emotionally and financially. Meredith Wineland has more than 30 years of experience in family law and will advocate for the financial support your children deserve. I help parents:

  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Negotiate child support through mediation
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Enforce child support orders
  • Modify child support orders

Child support guidelines

Arkansas law has established general child support guidelines. I strive to achieve the best possible financial solutions within the framework of these guidelines. I work to structure the child support receipt or payment arrangements that best suit your needs and your children’s needs.

Child support settlements through mediation

The structured process of mediation provides the opportunity for you and your spouse to put aside your differences and focus on the one point that you likely agree about — your children’s well-being. I am a skilled negotiator who can carefully guide the mediation process toward the most equitable solutions that serve the needs of the children.


Sometimes trial is necessary to obtain the financial support your child deserves. I meticulously prepare for litigation and zealously fight for your child’s right to a financially stable upbringing.

Enforcement of child support

Both parents share the responsibility of raising their child. When your former spouse tries to evade crucial financial obligations, I can compel the enforcement of your child support order.

Modification of child support

A lost job or serious injury can render you unable to pay your child support, yet you are required to pay the full amount until the court modifies your order. I can process a modification of your child support order expeditiously, so that childcare expenses are more fairly distributed.
