Child Support Lawyers

Child support is a financial contribution paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. Child support is designed to support the expenses of raising a child, such as food, clothing, education, medical expenses, and so on.

Child support payments must be made until the child is 18 to 21, depending on the state.

Every state calculates child support different. Common factors include:

  • The financial resources of the parents
  • The child’s health and any special needs
  • The child’s standard of living if the marriage would not have ended in divorce
  • The tax consequences to both parties
  • The child’s educational needs
  • Other non-monetary contributions that the parents will make towards caring for the child

If you are going through a divorce, do not agree to any child support arrangements without consulting an experienced divorce attorney. Although initial offers may seem tempting, they may not adequately address the needs of your child. (Read more about Child Support or Modifications)
