Helping People Secure Fair Child Support Levels
Ensuring that child support levels are appropriately set can be extremely important to guarantee that your child’s needs are met and the financial stability of each parent’s household is protected. Levels set too high can leave the paying parent at risk. Levels set too low may leave a child’s needs unmet or place an unfair burden on the parent who is receiving child support.
How Do The Courts Determine Child Support?
The courts rely on a formula contained in state guidelines to determine child support levels. The formula sets child support levels based on a variety of factors, including:
- Each parent’s gross monthly income
- Number of overnights
- Health care expenses
- Education expenses
The courts rely heavily on the formula’s output and rarely allow for a deviation. This makes it important that your attorney understand the importance of the factors that are considered such as income and expenses as those may be the only way to tailor your child support levels to the reality of your situation.
