Child Support

Once child custody has been determined, you may be required to establish terms for a child support agreement. In determining the cost of child support that a non-custodial parent may need to pay, the court follows guidelines set forth by the state. Courts keep the child's best interests in mind when making these determinations.

Child support guidelines help calculate a minimum amount of support that a parent may have to pay and are based off a few deciding factors, including:

  • Parent's employment and wages
  • Expenses
  • Cost of raising a child
