Child Support When You Need Someone on Your Side

Child Support Lawyers in Taney County

Providing Effective & Compassionate Representation

When spouses divorce, the noncustodial parent is usually ordered by a court to make child support payments to the custodial parent. These payments are intended to help the custodial parent cover the living expenses of their child. In cases where physical custody of the child is shared, a special agreement may be established. Many different factors are taken into consideration when determining how much is to be paid in child support.

Whether you need child support payments, believe you are paying too much in child support, or wish to modify your child support order, The Garrett Law Firm can help. Backed by years of experience, our Taney County child support lawyers are deeply familiar with all aspects of Missouri family law. We can navigate you through the legal process as we fight for the results you need.

How Child Support Is Determined

The court uses a formula called a Form 14 that takes into account a wide variety of factors to calculate how much is to be paid in child support.

These factors include the following, and more:

  • Extraordinary expenses, such as private school tuition or extracurricular activity fees
  • Uninsured extraordinary medical costs
  • Both parents’ monthly gross income
  • The number of children
  • Health insurance costs
  • Maintenance (Alimony) payments
  • Medical expenses
  • Daycare costs

Sometimes, a significant change in circumstances occurs which warrants a modification of the child support payments. For instance, if either spouse lost their job, sustained a serious illness or injury, got a promotion at work, or anything similar, a modification of the child support order may be necessary. A skilled attorney at The Garrett Law Firm can handle all your modification needs.
