Child Support

  • It is the right of the child. The determining factor is the non-residential parent’s gross annual income.  The amount is determined using the Federal Child Support Guidelines.  But, what do you do when the payor is intentionally unemployed or underemployed or is hiding income by working under the table. And, what about adult children who are working, going to school or have repudiated their relationship with the payor?
  • Consideration should be given to the need for an income report, what disclosure has been sought or what further disclosure is required.
