Paying child support

Determining child support can be approached in two ways. The first calls for calculating the cost of supporting a child while the second looks at how much a parent is capable of contributing toward a child’s welfare. The federal government requires all states to have calculation guidelines for child-support orders, which can be verified as well as certified. It is ultimately the family court that issues child-support orders, taking all of the above factors into consideration when deciding the amount needed to support the child. Child-support orders are usually reviewed every three years to adjust and modify the amount, depending on changes in a child’s financial needs or the noncustodial parent’s income.
