Child support is a monthly financial obligation intended to provide for the ongoing needs of your children. Generally, the amount of the obligation is based on guidelines that take into account a number of factors, including:
- Both parents’ respective incomes
- The child custody arrangement
- Relevant tax deductions
- Any special needs or circumstances of the children
Although these guidelines are often treated like a formula, there are some cases where special circumstances warrant an adjustment, either upwards or downward. It is important to consult with an attorney about the specific circumstances of your case.
