Charlotte Child Support Attorneys

Experienced Legal Support for North Carolina Parents

Every parent has an obligation to financially support his or her minor child. This can become especially important when parents separate and finances suffer. In some cases, divorcing parents may disagree on the matter of child support. Other cases may hinge on the fact that the supporting parent is delinquent or failing altogether on payments. Finally, when changing financial or other circumstances impact this issue, modifications to the existing court order may need to be requested.

If you are having child support problems as either the supported or supporting parent, you should seek competent legal help. Rech Law, P.C. has focused primarily on family law during our time in practice, which has given us the kind of experience that can make a difference. Our Charlotte child support lawyers offer legal support that is highly responsive and compassionate. We understand the difficult nature of divorce with its many emotional issues for parents and their children. That is why we strive to make the legal process as smooth and painless as possible.

How North Carolina Child Support Is Determined

State guidelines determine child support based on the gross incomes of both parents. Payments are made to the custodial parent by the other spouse to support the child’s needs in regards to health, education, and maintenance.

Additionally, in determining child support, courts consider:

  • The standard of living enjoyed by the child and parents prior to divorce
  • Child care and homemaker contributions of each parent
  • The parents’ earnings
  • The health conditions of the parents
  • The estates of both parents
  • Any other facts particular to the case

The gross incomes of the parents include income from any source, such as employment or self-employment income, ownership of a business, retirement or pension funds, rental property income, investment income, government benefits, and more.

Other considerations factored into the state guidelines for calculating child support include health insurance for the child, work-related child care costs, and extraordinary expenses. In some cases, the court may deviate from state guidelines when they do not meet or would exceed a child’s needs. In these instances, the court will consider what the guidelines would calculate, what the child’s needs are, and why the calculated amount by the guidelines would not be appropriate.
