How Does Child Support Work?

Child support is a payment made by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help offset the cost of raising a child. This includes medical expenses, food costs, clothing, shelter, daycare, and educational needs. Child custody arrangements are intended to take into account a number of factors and are determined using a specific state guideline based upon each parent's income or sometimes, income potential, or asking the court to deviate from the specific guidelines.

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

  • Physical/emotional needs of the child
  • Each parent's income level
  • Healthcare needs of the child
  • Standard of living the child had before the parents separated
  • Educational needs of the child
  • Employment status of each parent
  • Each parent's educational level
  • If either parent has other children and is required to pay child support for them

    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 of those changes and placed on written notice of when a modification should take place. We can help you draft a petition to the court explaining the change which has occurred and request a modification.
