Custody Arrangements Play a Major Role in Child Support
Child support and child custody go hand-in-hand. When both parents have equal joint custody and equally share the cost of raising the child, it may not be necessary for either parent to pay child support. On the other hand, if one parent has sole custody and carries the major responsibility of the cost and care of the child, the other parent may need to contribute a significant amount.
Judges make determinations on custody and support based on the best interests of children. However, you cannot assume that a judge’s assessment of your case will accurately reflect your child’s needs. With our child support lawyers advocating for your rights and carefully outlining the needs of your child, you may work to ensure that you secure a favorable child support arrangement.

Calculating Child Support Payments
The calculations for child support are based on a net resource figure. This number is calculated by deducting federal income tax withholding, Social Security withholding, and medical insurance premium cost for the children from gross income from all sources. The net resource number is then multiplied by a percentage, which is based on the number of children involved.
Net resource multipliers include the following:
- 20% for 1 child
- 25% for 2 children
- 30% for 3 children
- 35% for 4 or more children
