How to Determine Child Support?
Child support is one of the more misunderstood family law concepts. It is intended to ensure that both parents share financial obligations to the child based on established guidelines. The final amount of child support can be higher or lower based on these guidelines. Since every child is different, considerations may be made for each of their needs, even extending child support into adulthood for permanently disabled children.
Child support is based upon:
- Income of both parents
- Health insurance costs
- Childcare costs
- Extraordinary needs of the child
- Custody arrangements
Child support orders may be modified with the help of a family lawyer. Depending on the circumstances and situation of the family, the amount may be modified for a fairer outcome. Examples of changes that affect child support can include a parent’s inability to work or a child’s unexpected health concern. Whether you are looking for a new support order or a modification to an existing one, trust the dedicated family law attorney from Daniels Law, P.A.
