Guiding You Through the Child Support Process
Child support payments are largely determined by state statute. The legislature lays out a number of factors that a court must consider in determining a child support order, including:
- The needs of the children
- The income of each parent
- Which parent pays for the child’s health care, daycare and other expenses
- Time-sharing (parenting) plan
- Spousal support
- How the marital property was divided
- Tax status of the parents
We help our clients work through the statute to ensure that all income and allowable deductions are included in the calculations. Our law firm is also available to assist with any child support modification request or in seeking enforcement of child support payments.
