Child Support

Among the challenges that arise from divorce and child custody proceedings is the ability for parents to provide adequate support for their children. It is extremely important to remember that it is a child’s right to receive appropriate child support. In most divorce or separation cases, it is necessary for the parent who does not live with the child more than half of the overnights in a year (non-custodial parent) to provide financial support to the parent who lives primarily with the child (custodial parent).

The court considers the following elements, among others, when establishing a child support arrangement: 

  • Number of minor children;

  • Incomes or earning capacities of both parents;

  • Medical needs of the child/children including medical insurance coverage;

  • Educational needs of the child such as private school expenses; and

  • Child care costs.

When it comes to determining the financial arrangements regarding child support, the experienced family law attorneys at Williams Family Law, P.C., are here to help.
