Tuscaloosa Child Support Lawyer
Child support is often one of the most contested issues in divorce. Although the state of Alabama has created the Alabama Child Support Guidelines, the advice of an experienced attorney can ensure that the guidelines are properly calculated in your case. An experienced attorney can also advise you on whether or not your case is a case where the guidelines should not be applied.
The state of Alabama employs state guidelines for determining child support levels. Various factors are considered such as:
- Both parties' gross monthly income
- Health insurance costs
- Child care costs
- Educational costs
- Amount of time a parent spends with the child
While the guidelines generally adhere to a strict formula for determining child support levels, in certain cases, departures from that formula can be applicable under special circumstances, including a combined income that is above the maximum amount of the guidelines or special circumstances regarding your child, such as a significant medical need or a custodial arrangement that gives both parents equal time with their child. In these cases, experience legal counsel is necessary to determine the correct amount of child support that should be paid.
