Aurora Child Support Lawyer

Child Support is set by guidelines and will depend on the non-custodial parent's net income and the number of children for which he or she is responsible.

Number of Children -- Percent of Non-Custodial Parent's Net Income

1 20%
2 28%
3 32%
4 40%
5 45%
6+ 50%

Courts will usually follow these guidelines in making a minimum award of Child Support. However, in some circumstances there can be deviations from these guidelines. Under no circumstance can a child support obligation be waived by either party.

Understanding Child Support

A non-custodial parent has an absolute duty to provide child support to their minor child.

The aforementioned guidelines are usually followed by the Court, and are ordered as a minimum contribution towards the support of the minor child(ren). Other expenses such as Daycare, Extra-Curricular activities and Uninsured medical expenses are usually not included in the overall child support obligation.

Your net income is calculated by your take home pay, minus allowable deductions. For example, if you provide health insurance for your minor child(ren), your health insurance premiums that have been deducted are considered an allowable deduction from your "net income."

If you are required to pay Child Support, the court may require you to complete a child support with-holding order in which your child support obligation will be automatically deducted from your paycheck. In order to modify a child support order, there must be a "material" change in circumstances as to your income. An example of this, would be if you lost your employment or received a substantial pay-cut. If no order is entered modifying you child support obligation, you will continue to be required to pay that amount. Orders modifying child support will usually not be applied retroactively.
