Determining Child Support
There are standard guidelines used to determine the proper amount of child support payments. The guidelines, often referred to as the child support calculator, primarily deal with the income of the parents. The standard in most cases is about $290 a child per month on average. However, that number can be much higher or much lower depending on circumstances.
If a significant change occurs related to a parent's income, modification of support becomes an option. For instance, if the father had a high-paying job and then is forced to take a job for significantly less pay, he can seek to have his child support payments reduced.
