How Support Is Calculated

Child support calculations factor in a number of factors, including income and number of children. This can also include support obligations from previous relationships.

While the calculations are seemingly straightforward once you plug in all the numbers, it is important you have an attorney helping you through the process to determine if your situation calls for a deviation from the standard or use of rebuttal factors.

Richard E. Fowlks will walk you through the process of gathering information and plugging in numbers into the calculator. He will also explain how credits from overnights and other variables can affect the calculated amounts, including spousal support.

On one hand, you probably want the child support process to go quickly. On the other, you want to be sure your attorney takes the time necessary to protect your child’s best interests.
