Assistance With Child Support Determinations

Parents have a responsibility to provide financial support to their children. When parents divorce, there can be disagreements about how much support each one is responsible for providing. The North Carolina Child Support Guidelines exist to provide a formula to determine child support payments.

We can be reached locally at 252-757-3535 or toll free at 800-682-1756.

What Factors Are Included In The Formula?

Whether you will be responsible for paying support or will be receiving support payments, it is important to get help from an attorney who can carefully assess each factor involved in the calculation. Factors that are included in the formula include:

  • Each parent’s income
  • Costs for health and dental insurance for the child/children
  • Child care expenses
  • Child support obligations for a child or children from other relationships
  • Special considerations for a child’s disability, health or other condition

We seek to safeguard your parental rights and the best interests of your child or children. While the guidelines are mandatory and clear-cut, there is room for deviation. We can help identify any reasonable adjustments that can be made and deviate from the guidelines when necessary.

Child Support Payments Can Change

It may be necessary to change the amount of child support that you are paying or receiving. Perhaps child custody arrangements have changed, or perhaps you or the other parent has experienced a significant upwards or downwards change in salary. Our lawyers can assist with child support modifications to help you adjust to changing circumstance
