Child Support

Child Support

Child support payments are based on a percentage of the payor’s net resources and the number of children. Judges will typically use the Child Support Guidelines for determining support, however, determinations can be reached creatively outside of court. As with all legal situations, there are exceptions to every rule. Kelly can work with you to see if your children qualify for an exception and should receive either more or less child support than the Guidelines provide.

Health insurance premiums and 1/2 of uninsured medical expenses are usually included as additional child support obligations. Kelly will help you evaluate your options to optimize protection for your children while minimizing your out of pocket expenses.
