Child support payments are often among the most contentious parts of a divorce proceeding. While there is a basic formula that the court can use to determine payments, the complexities of each case require a more detailed approach. Every case that goes to the courts can be argued based on various extenuating circumstances. Having an experienced child support attorney on your side will make sure that your case is presented correctly and you get your rights served.
There are three main factors that help determine the amount of child support to be paid in a case.
• Gross income of each parent
• Cost of medical insurance
• Cost of daycare that will be required
Going beyond those basic factors, things like custody arrangements and mortgage payments can cause the court to stray from the standard formula. You need to have an attorney like Ted Williams working for you to explore all of these areas and make sure that the child support arrangement is fair and just.
