Every Family Is Unique

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to determining child custody. Every family is different, and consequently, every family has its own unique set of needs. When determining child support, it is important to consider the needs of the children in question and how their parents can best meet those needs. Oftentimes, this means that the non-custodial parent is ordered to pay child support by the courts. Child support is designed to ensure the needs of the children are met and that their quality of life is adequately maintained after a divorce.

When determining child support, the courts consider the:

  • Ages of all children involved
  • Living situation of both parents
  • Custody arrangement and where the children will spend most of their time
  • Employment status and income of both parents
  • Educational needs of the children
  • Special needs of the children, if there are any

Generally speaking, child support orders will expire when the child turns eighteen. However, there are situations in which child support payments will continue past this age. For example, in the case of special needs children or children with disabilities, child support may carry on indefinitely to ensure the child well provided for.

Modifying Child Support Orders

As time passes, the needs of your family will change. For example, the needs of a 5-year old are very different than the needs of a 15-year old. To accommodate these changes, you might need to adjust or modify your child support order.

Situations that may result in a modification of child support can include:

  • A child’s needs have substantially changed
  • A parent lost or changed jobs
  • The custody arrangement changed
  • A health condition or special need has arisen

If you find that you require a modification to your child support order, you must process this change with the courts. Before they accept the amendment, you must prove that there has been a significant change in circumstances. Our Temple child support attorney can help prepare you for court and ensure that you have all of your paperwork in order. Our goal is to help you do what is best for your family and to help you feel confident in court.
