Child Support

Divorce inevitably raises the issue of support: Who will support the children during separation and once the divorce is finalized? In other words, who has the obligation to provide financial backing for a couple’s children?

North Carolina’s child support guidelines dictate how much parents owe (or are owed) in child support based on factors like the spouses’ monthly income, their responsibility for other minor children, and other expenses like healthcare premiums and work-related childcare payments.

It is possible for child support calculations to deviate from these guidelines in certain circumstances. Investing in a family law attorney’s counsel can help to secure your child – or children’s – financial wellbeing.
