If you are a divorcing parent, child support will no doubt be an issue in your divorce proceedings. Despite a parent’s desire to do what is best for his or her child, the financial issues that arise during a divorce can be quite contentious. There are legal guidelines in place that help to establish child support payments, but these guidelines might not be comprehensive enough to address every situation. It is essential you work with an experienced attorney regarding your family.
Child support payments are based on a combination of a parent’s ability to pay, the child’s specific needs, and the financial needs of the custodial parent. The amount of time children spend with each parent also affect the calculation of payments. The goal, no matter the situation, is to ensure a child has the financial support he or she needs to lead a healthy, well-adjusted life that is as close as possible to what he or she was experiencing prior to the divorce.
