Understanding Child Support – St. Louis Child Support Attorney

If you are in the middle of a divorce, it is imperative to work with a St. Louis child support attorney who can help you determine the terms necessary in your case.

For anyone divorcing who has children, child support may be one of the most challenging aspects to agree upon in a settlement. Child support is money a non-custodial parent is ordered to pay regularly to help the custodial parent properly provide for their child. It is often part of a divorce settlement, but can be part of a any lawsuit where a separated couple have a child together and one persona is providing for that child.

A child support statement will determine when, how often and how much a parent is required to pay child support. A parent may be eligible for child support if one of the following is true:

  • He or she has physical custody
  • He or she is in the process of getting a divorce
  • He or she has actual custody of a child whom paternity hasn’t been legally determined and there is not support order.

The guidelines in Missouri account for the needs of the child or children, the income of each part, the costs for child care and the costs for health insurance. Due to these factors, child support can vary greatly depending on the situation.

If you are getting a divorce and children are involved or if you are separated from a child’s other parent and you would like to obtain support, it is important to call a caring St. Louis child support attorney today.
