How Child Support Is Calculated

North Carolina has mathematical guidelines that courts use when determining child support. The formula encompasses the parents’ income, how much time they will spend with the child, health care expenses and other factors. Careful consideration must also be given to certain additional costs such as uninsured medical expenses.

Why You Need An Attorney When Child Support Is The Issue

The seemingly straightforward formula does not automatically make child support cases straightforward. On the contrary, child support disputes are often incredibly complicated. Because of the many unique issues that may arise, you should work with an accomplished lawyer. Such issues include:

  • Child support involving high incomes
  • Exceptions involving special circumstances
  • Children who have special needs
  • Children who require high care costs
  • Demonstrating that a co-parent is voluntarily underemployed or unemployed
  • Post-judgment modifications

Our divorce and family law attorneys can evaluate your case to give you an estimate of your support calculation. We can also assist clients with child support modifications. Our lawyers practice exclusively in family law issues, so we can provide the sound guidance and vigorous representation you require.
