Mens Rights In Divorce Lawyers


Child support is ordered as part of a child custody agreement, legal separation, dissolution of a marriage, divorce, or by determination of parentage (ie paternity). A child has the right to receive support from both parents whether the parents are in the home raising the child or not. Even if the circumstance is that one of the parents never sees the child by the parent’s own choice, the child’s choice or by the choice of the courts they still must pay as agreed upon or as ordered. When child support is ordered, the amount is determined by several factors.  These factors may include:

  • Both Parents’ Income Levels
  • Number of Children to Be Supported
  • Ages of Children
  • Basic Living Expenses
  • School Fees
  • Medical Needs (disabilities, long term healthcare for serious illness/disease)
  • Special Needs of the Child
