Child support payments are often among the most contentious parts of a divorce proceeding. There is a basic formula that the court can use to determine minimum payments, the complexities of each case require a more detailed approach. Every case that goes to court can be argued basesd on specific circumstances. It is most important to have an experienced child support attorney that will make sure your case is presented in the best light emphasizing the major points that will help your case so that your legal rights will be served best.
Often times when a couple is not married, but have parented a child, child support issues still apply. There are additional issues that will be examined and it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
There are several factors that help determine the amount of child support to be paid for each child.
*Gross Income of each parent
*Cost of Medical Insurance and who provides this for the child or children
*Cost of any daycare that is required
Beyond those factors, things like mortgage payments and custody arrangements can cause the court to stray from the standard formula.
