Determining Child Support Payments
Child support amounts are calculated by using a standard formula. The non-custodial
parent will typically be the one making payments to the custodial parent.
If you are a business owner with complex finances or is unemployed or underemployed,
you may benefit from having a lawyer review your situation to help determine
your true income and support obligations.
Child support is determined by factoring:
- Net income of both parents
- Number of children to receive support
- Cost of medical and daycare expenses
- Other child support obligations paid to other children
