Main Factors in Determining Child Support

You may be wondering what will be considered when you file for child support or when you are the party on the receiving end of a request for child support. It’s important to understand the factors evaluated in determining child support in court, as this will help you to understand the likely outcome of a child support case. When determining legally equitable child support payments, three main concerns are considered:

  1. Basic Support Needed: Basic support includes any support that would be necessary for any person. This includes housing, food, transportation, clothing, and school expenses.
  2. Medical Support: Medical support includes any money that is expected to be needed for health, dental, and ocular insurance costs, psychological needs or attention, co-payments for medical visits, prescriptions, procedures, and any other medical costs a child may incur.
  3. Child Care Support: Child care support is needed in instances when the child requires care outside of being cared for by a parent, including daycare, “babysitting” expenses, or other child care programs.
    The amount and type of child support you or your parenting partner will pay will depend on these three child support needs as well as their ability to pay for these needs out of their personal income.
