Each state has its own guidelines to calculate child support. These complex calculations are based on the parents’ incomes and deductions, and the proportional time each parent spends with the child. Depending on state law, a judge may have discretion to deviate from the guidelines in limited situations. A local family law attorney can help you understand your state’s child support guidelines and how to seek an optimal solution for you and your children.
If you’re facing financial problems, it’s important to ask a judge to modify your support order. The court must believe your hardship is unintentional, because you lost your job or are unable to work due to injury or illness. A local family law attorney can often work with the custodial parent and a judge to help you reduce your child support payments.
