Common Factors Considered for Support Payments
The court examines many factors when determining child support payments, including:
- The cost of living expenses
- The health of each parent
- The health of the children
- Taxes or union dues each parent owes
- The income of each parent and potential to earn
- How much time the child spends with each parent
Modifications of Child Support
You can seek a post-divorce modification of your child support payments if you have experienced a change in your financial situation. It could be that you have a decrease in your income and cannot make your support payments or need more in support payments to adequately care for your child. There can also be changes in your need, such as daycare expenses or medical care expenses.
