How Is Child Support Determined?
Simply put, child support is an ongoing, periodic payment made for the benefit of your child following a divorce or separation. Child support is often based on custody – and, in most cases, is paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. Rhode Island family law relies upon guidelines that assist the courts in calculating child support.
In determining the appropriate amount of support, the courts consider the following factors:
- The financial resources, needs, and obligations of both the non-custodial and the custodial parent
- The physical and emotional conditions and educational needs of the child
- The earning potential of the parents
- Any other dependents of the parents
- Any other relevant factors
