Child Support Deviations
When determining child support calculations, the courts are guided by the principle of protecting the best interests of the child. When the standard guidelines do not serve that purpose, judges have discretion to deviate from them.
Circumstances that may call for a deviation from standard child support arrangements include:
- Special needs of the child such as a disability
- Child support obligations from another relationship
- Visitation considerations such as travel expenses
Also, when the income of both parents is in excess of $150,000, child support cases are looked at on a case-by-case basis.
Whatever your situation, our lawyers will work with you personally to help you understand your legal options. With sound legal guidance, you can be equipped with the information you need to make informed decisions about child support and other family law matters.
