How Much Child Support To Pay

How Is The Amount Of Child Support Determined?

Federal guidelines must be followed when a court sets the amount of child support payments.  Most states now use formulas that fit within these guidelines. The guidelines prevent payment orders from varying widely from jurisdiction to jurisdiction or court to court.

What Factors Do Child Support Formulas Consider?

Factors included in the formulas include the amount of time a parent spends with the child, the number of children involved and the lifestyle the parents and children have become accustomed to and parental net income and net worth.  Special circumstances are also taken into consideration, such as unusual medical expenses, special educational needs, extraordinary travel expenses incurred for visitation or other unusual circumstances that might affect the welfare of the child or children.  Because of the complexity of the computation, it is advised to have legal representation to insure that all factors are considered fairly.

How Long Must Child Support Continue?

Child support generally continues through the child's high school years.  Some States extend payments beyond those years or may specify until the child reaches his/her 18th birth day.  Child support can also be terminated in the event of the child's death, enlistment in the armed services or if the child becomes self supporting.

What Are The Tax Consequences Of Child Support?

Unlike alimony payments, child support payments are not tax deductible to the parent making the payments nor are they taxable to the parent receiving the payments.

If A Paying Parent's Income Decreases Can Child Support Payments Be Lowered?

If the child support paying parent has a significant change in income an agreement can be made between the parents to reduce or temporarily suspend child support payments.  This agreement should be in writing and negotiated with the aid of legal advice.

If a suitable payment adjustment cannot be worked out between the parents, the paying parent can petition the court to modify the support order for future support payments.
