Child support is one of the many issues that will be discussed and need resolving in your divorce matter. Additionally, visitation rights are often highly disputed in a divorce proceeding. The best case scenario in these proceedings is working with the opposing party to attempt to work out an amicable agreement without court intervention.
Child Support is determined by the amount of income and resources available to the parent as well as the ages of the children. The need of the children will be determined in regards to health care needs, dental needs, and educational needs. Child support is determined by the court using a guideline calculator. The guideline calculator takes into account several factors effecting income to formulate an appropriate amount for child support payments.
It is possible to sit down with the other party and work out an agreement that both parties find to be fair and appropriate. Once an agreement is made it is beneficial to have a family law attorney look over the terms of the agreement to ensure both parties have signed a valid contract.
