How Is Child support Determined?
When determining how much child support should be paid by a parent, courts generally look at the following things to reach a decision:
- The income of both parents
- How much time the children spend with each parent
- Extracurricular activities and other discretionary factors
Courts look at these things to get a better understanding of the standard of living that the family has grown accustomed to, as well as to determine which parent would be less burdened by having to make child support payments.
How Do I Know If My Child Support Agreement Is Fair?
If you want to make sure you and your spouse are able to reach a fair child support agreement, you will need the services of an experienced family law attorney who is familiar with these types of cases.
Our attorneys will use our extensive resources to investigate your ex-spouse’s finances in order to get an accurate picture of their income and assets. Although you will be able to access your ex-spouse’s finances during the legal proceedings, you will need a talented lawyer who will pursue all financial resources that you are entitled to.
You will need to obtain copies of the following documents to determine the income of both you and your spouse:
- Pay stubs
- W-2 forms
- Tax returns
- Income & expense declarations
- Any other documents that can prove sources of income
