Determining Child Support
Compared to the other aspects of a divorce settlement, child support is very straightforward and predictable. After other issues, such as custody sharing and alimony are decided, child support is determined by looking at the net incomes of the parents. There is a basic equation with the net result being that the more a parent makes, the more they will pay in the child support.
As with most issues in a divorce, the judge can choose to deviate from the standard child support formula. For example, if a child attends a private school or has special medical needs, that could result in the need for more child support. As always, however, a parent's ability to pay will be a major deciding factor in any child support arrangement.
