Child Support and Divorce

Posted by attorney Douglas Kepanis

Child support amounts may be agreed upon by both parents or may be ordered by a judge if parents are unable to reach an agreement. When determined by the court, it's calculated based on a specific formula. Based on a child's unique needs, however, the courts have the discretion to increase or decrease the amount of child support to be paid.
