Factors Involved in Calculating Child Support

Similar to many other contentious issues involved in divorce, child support can often bring disputes and arguments—even in the most peaceful proceedings. Whether you and your spouse want to resolve matters between yourselves or need to take your case to the court, it is imperative that you have legal counsel throughout this time. Regardless of the details of your case, the court will have to approve a support document to ensure that it meets the requirements, more specifically, that it is in your child's best interests.

In general, the following factors are used to calculate support:

  • Each parent's monthly income
  • The health insurance and medical needs of the child
  • How much time the child will spend with the non-custodial parent
  • The number of children that are depending on support
  • Amount of alimony, if any, non-custodial parent is paying
  • Any other factors that may affect support needs

Paying Child Support After the Child Turns 19

Normally, the child support agreement would need special provisions to continue past the age of 19, but there are times when the parents either agree to pay child support longer, or there is a court order that requires an extended period of payment.

Most often, the extended period of payment occurs when the child has special needs or medical issues and cannot support himself or herself. This would require the paying parent to pay longer than expected to cover medical support. When parents can work together to determine this portion of child support, it often proves to be more beneficial as the paying spouse has more incentive to pay — they don’t feel forced to do so.

Contact Family Law Advocacy Group Today!

While child support orders will be enforced as permanent, there are opportunities for modifications to be made. If you have immediate concerns about a support agreement, you can appeal the court's decision. However, if you run into issues down the road, such as a change of employment or medical concerns, you can petition the court for a modification. The San Bernardino child support attorney at our firm is here to help!
