Divorces come with many challenges but none are as emotionally charged as child support. Custody plays a huge part in determining how much child support is being payed. The courts will focus on the child’s future and well-being to determine the amount that they believe should be paid. Some of the factors that will be considered by the court are:
-Financial needs such as medical insurance
-Monthly food and clothing
-Both parent’s individual incomes
After the court reviews the factors between the separating parties, the payer and the amount being paid is determined. This may seem like a smooth and easy process at first, but like most matters involving family law, it depends on the two parties involved.
