How is Child Support Determined?

When two parents decide to part ways, one common factor remains: their shared child or children. This can very quickly become complicated, as you can imagine. This is why it is necessary you don’t run the risk of enduring a drawn-out, contentious legal battle. Instead, our attorneys of The Virga Law Firm, P.A. want to ensure your child support issue is not an issue for very much longer.

Child support is calculated according to a number of specific factors, which is why the amount is unique to each couple and each child. Factors considered in determining the correct amount include, but are not limited to, the earning capacity of each parent, the needs of the children involved, tax filings of each parent, and how much time each parent spends with the child in question.

Child support issues are complex, and they are generally ever-changing due to life’s circumstances. If a child develops new needs, or a parent loses his or her job, these payments are adjusted according to need. Ensuring you are paying or receiving the correct amount of child support is essential for the well-being of your child, as well as for the long-term.
