There is more to child support than what you see

If you find yourself going through a divorce, you know that the future will be cloudy in many ways. This definitely holds true if you have at least one child with your soon to be former spouse.

For this reason, you need to think long and hard about matters of child support. The sooner you come to grips with your situation the better off you will be.

In the state of Maryland, there are child support guidelines that the court uses to determine how much should be paid. With the use of a mathematical formula, it's easier for the court to make a final decision and for both individuals to understand their situation.

The child support guidelines take many factors into consideration, including:

-- The gross income of each parent.

-- The cost of providing health insurance to the child.

-- Any expenses associated with work related daycare.

-- Any child support that the non-custodial parent is required to pay from another relationship.

In the event that you are required to pay child support, it's important that you are able to do so in full and on time every month. If this isn't possible, perhaps due to a change to your financial situation, you should consider filing a petition for a child support modification.

At our law firm, we know that divorce is hard on a family. We also know that you may have questions related to child support, child custody, and other family law matters. When you get on the right track from the start, it's much easier to deal with anything that comes up.
