Don't be mistaken, child support isn't simple

Many divorcing parents go into the process thinking that aspects of child support and custody are easily determined. Unfortunately, this misconception leads many to make poor decisions or to settle for a family court's initial determination. Not only can child support be negotiated, working with an experienced attorney can help modify current support orders to include previously overlooked expenses.

Child support, like child custody, can be seen as a resource meant for the best interest of a child. Child support is meant to bridge the income gap between parents and keep a child's lifestyle similar between both homes. Contrary to popular belief, child support is not only designed to cover the necessities of life. By working with an attorney, divorcing parents may be able to address specific financial concerns related to the upbringing of a child, and have them included in the calculation of child support.

A family law attorney will know what specific information is relevant to the calculation of child support. They may also be able to effectively support a case for child support modification to include other information relevant to a child's upbringing. Elements such as entertainment, educational expenses and day care may all be overlooked during an initial child support hearing. However, working with an experienced attorney may help divorcing parents identify these elements and include them in the initial child support calculation or modification.

An experienced attorney can help address child support concerns and may be able to alleviate any ongoing or future financial tension between parents by having them included in the calculation of child support. For the most comprehensive calculation of child support, divorcing parents may want to speak to a family law attorney.
