How Is Child Support Decided & Calculated?
Some people wrongly assume that everyone qualifies for child support payments, no matter the situation. However, family courts actually have a specific way of calculating who pays child support, how much they will pay, and for how long. In most cases, child support is given until the child turns 21, but this can vary depending on the circumstances. We can meet with you to ensure you understand what to expect out of the child support calculation process.
A few of the factors which determine how much child support will be paid include:
- The child's financial needs
- The child's educational and health care needs
- If the child has any special needs
- The income and earning capacity of each parent
- The education level and health of each parent
