Guilford County Family Law: Child Support

In Uncategorizedby GWAO

Greensboro and High Point Family Law

Child support is down to a science. Support obligations come down to (a) the income of the parties (b) any previous awards of child support, and (c) any other children living with the parties.

Income relates to the actual income of the parties, this includes non-taxable income, and income from self-employment. Income will not include any alimony award, but will include social security benefits received for the benefit of the minor children.

Child Support may also be adjusted if the supporting party is providing health insurance, paying for education, or other extraordinary expenses.

All of these considerations will be made and then plugged into a work sheet that determines how much the supporting spouse will have to pay.
