Finding a Fair Solution to Child Support
Your Child Support Calculation is based on the Child Support Guidelines adopted by the state legislature. Whether you are going through a divorce, or trying to modify an existing child support order, the amount you pay or receive in support is dictated by these statutory guidelines.
At the Law Offices of Paul F. Sherman, we maintain a thorough and up-to-date knowledge of the latest child support guidelines and laws. Child support amounts are based on:
- Gross income of each spouse
- Amount of spousal support
- Health insurance costs
- Day care expenses
- Parenting plans and the children's overnight time with each parent
All parents have a duty to provide financial support to their children. Child support cannot be waived. The amount you are expected to contribute for the support of your children is directly related to the percentage of income between you and the other parent. The issues of daycare and medical insurance costs are often in addition to basic child support. College or secondary education must also be considered for many families.
While both parents are expected to contribute financially to child support, only one parent will actually be required to make a payment on a monthly basis. Usually the primary residential parent will be responsible for the day-to-day management and expenditures associated with support of the children.
Paul F. Sherman is an experienced child support lawyer. We handle cases involving the self-employed, family business, commission based salary, military, overtime, bonuses, or cases involving intentional unemployment and willful underemployment that require the Court to impute a true income for the other party.
