Calculating Child Support
Accurate & Reliable Legal Counsel
Following a 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
These factors can seem rather vague, which is why it is essential you enlist in the help of an experienced and skilled Rhode Island divorce lawyer, such as ours at TJC • ESQ, who will be able to provide personal attention to the specific details of your case.
