Child custody and child support can be contentious aspects of a divorce with children. Parents should be concerned for the wellbeing and security of their children. This includes being able to provide for their basic needs. The Court will determine which parent should pay child support and will calculate how much the parent should pay. The amount of child support the parent will pay is determined by consideration of a few factors.
The factors for consideration may include each parent’s gross income, allowable deductions from gross income, custody and parenting plan, and child support payments for children from other relationships. If a parent does not have an income, the court may assign a value to determine the child support obligation.
