How Is Child Support Calculated?

While the state provides guidelines for determining child support, each case is handled on an individual basis. There are numerous factors which can influence the final amount of support to be paid each month.

  • Net Income
  • Employment Expenses
  • Health Insurance
  • Financial Hardships
  • Tax Obligations
  • Other Support Obligations

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • I Have Joint Custody. Do I Still Have to Pay Support?

    Answer

    While courts can show a preference towards awarding joint custody where possible, it may not negate the possibility of paying child support. As the financial support is intended for the benefit of the child, neither parent can waive their right to pay or receive these funds.

  • What If My Former Partner Is Not Paying Support?

    Answer

    While child support agreements are legally binding court orders, parents will not always play by the rules. Depending on your circumstances, there may be several routes allowing the owed parent to enforce the terms of an agreement. Our legal team can help you to hold parents financially responsible.

  • Can I Modify an Existing Agreement?

    Answer

    While it can be difficult to change an agreement, it may be possible to secure a modification. Typically, a judge will grant a modification only if it can be shown that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the original order was issued.
