Calculating Child Support
Accurate & Reliable Legal Counsel
divorce when there are children involved, it is likely one parent will be required
to pay child support in order to keep the child’s financial status
as consistent as it was prior to the ending of the marriage. The courts
will need to be given accurate documentation of all of your financial
records so as to calculate a sufficient child support payment amount.
As things in your life change, so will your ability to provide
child support, whether that means the amount will increase or decrease. In that case,
modifications can be requested and granted if appropriate proof is provided
to the judge.
Calculating child support is based on a number of criteria, including but
limited to the following:
- Number of children
- Gross annual income of parents
- Custody arrangement
- Educational and physical needs of the child
- Spousal support
- Disabilities of the child
