How Does Child Support Work?

Child support is a payment made by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help offset costs of raising a child. This includes medical expenses, food costs, clothing, and shelter. As simple as this may seem, many parents make the process more difficult by refusing to pay or dragging their feet. Child custody arrangements are intended to take into account a number of factors and are determined using a specific state guideline.

When establishing child support, a few factors may be considered such as:

  • Healthcare needs of the child
  • Physical/emotional needs of the child
  • Each parent's income level
  • Standard of living the child had
  • Education needs of the child
  • Employment status of each parent
  • Each parent's education level
  • If either parent has other children

Modifying Your Child Support Order

Have circumstances changed in your life which prevent you or the other parent of your child from paying support as ordered? If you already have a child support order established, you will need to take legal steps to ensure that the court is made aware. We can help you draft a petition to the court explaining the change which has occurred and requesting a modification.

Call (703) 454-5147 for a Case Consultation

When left to the judge, decisions regarding child support are not always made immediately. The court must review all of the information presented before making the decision they believe will be best for the child. At Keithley Law, we have 40 years of experience and are highly knowledgeable about the requirements and laws which affect child support negotiations. Our Fairfax child support attorney can help you understand what to expect as well as how to prioritize your needs during the process.
