A child support attorney knows that child support is a mandatory component of any case involving children in either juvenile Court or domestic relations court where the child is 18 years or younger or has not graduated high school by the age of 19. A child support attorney can provide valuable information and help you complete the mandatory child support worksheet to your best advantage.
A child support attorney that represents you should understand that you get credit for any other children you are paying child support for at the same time as the order being sought in the instant case. A child support attorney representing you should also understand that you get credit if you are supplying the healthcare dental care and or vision care for the dependent child. Your child support attorney should also be aware that the cost of daycare for the child is a big component in the child support worksheet. A good child support attorney may be able to propose alternative plans to keep this cost down and therefore lower the child support payment.
If a shared parenting plan is involved your child support attorney should advise you about obtaining a deviation from the normal child support order if you are spending at least 50% of the child’s time with you and your spouse. This deviation may depend upon the relative level of incomes of the respective parties. Your child support attorney will be able to advise you as to the best course of action.
