Factors Considered in a Child Support Case
As for child support, a number of factors are reviewed by the court to determine the amount that needs to be paid by either one or each parent to support their family.
Said factors include:
- Educational Expenses
- Childcare Expenses
- Medical Expenses
- Ages of Your Children
- How Many Children Require Support
- The Earning Potential of Each Spouse
