Child Support Faqs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:How is child support calculated?

    A:Child support is calculated using a standard formula. The income of the parents, the number of kids, other financial obligations, and the time a parent spends with children are all relevant considerations. All of this information is considered in light of the standard formula and the court orders support. You cannot generally deviate from the customary amount, except with good reason. Find out more about how child support is calculated.

  • Q:How long are support payments required?

    A:Child support payments typically have to be paid until a child has reached the age of 18, although there are some exceptions where payments may be necessary for longer if a child is still in high school. Parents can also negotiate to include provisions in a divorce settlement agreement requiring contributions to a child’s college education- but this is optional.

  • Q:Must I continue paying child support if a custody agreement has changed?

    A:If a custody agreement is modified, this may result in a change to your child support obligations. It depends upon what the new custody arrangement is. You will need to first petition the court to formally modify the custody agreement and then petition for a change in support requirements.
