It's important to remember that child support payments are not meant to be punitive, but instead are meant to facilitate adequate care for your child. There are formulas in place to determine the general guidelines for awarding child support amounts, other factors may come into play for your specific situation. In general, child support is meant to do exactly that - to support (not pay 100%) the needs of your child or children. These needs usually include a percentage of food, clothes, housing, medical expenses, and other necessary expenses for your individual child. Our attorneys will fight for what's in the best interests of you and your child to achieve an agreeable outcome in your particular situation.
