Every Child Deserves the Financial Support of Both Parents
The Children's "Best Interests" Are Not Just Words at Sneider Law
When marriage partners choose to separate and children are involved, child support is a very important part of the divorce that needs to be properly planned and calculated. Both parents are obligated to support their children to meet any and all needs.
The minimum guideline amount is based upon the parties income, number of children, and the childrens over-night time with the non-custodial parent. As of January 2011, 100% of childcare cost is calculated into the child support guidelines, what was previously only 75%. Courts may deviate from the guideline amount based on medical requirements or other needs of the child, the parents financial abilities, and many other factors.
When planning child support, it is most important to think of what the child will require to be safe, stable, and comfortable in his or her home. There are several factors and guidelines that are taken into account when adjusting the amount of child support required by one parent. At Sneider Law, we understand all the aspects that need to be included when creating a child support agreement.
Every situation and family is unique and that is what makes these types of arrangements impossible to give a set answer to as far as "how much." Attorney Glenn Sneider will meet with you to discuss your situation and advise you on what to expect when determining child support for your child or children. Sneider Law will help you navigate smoothly through this transitional period and maintain as much affinity between both parties as possible.
At Sneider Law, we represent divorcing parents dealing with the legal issues with the purpose of dividing the financial and emotional responsibility of raising their children. Those who have failed to pay child support could suffer serious consequences.
