      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.
