Married or not, parents are legally obligated to provide financial support for their children. Factors such as bonuses, health insurance premiums, retirement contributions or overtime can cause complexity in child support calculations and Courts have discretion in determining support. Gross income (at times of both parties), the number of children and the placement schedule are also factors that affect child support. There are also different calculations once payors reach a certain “high income” threshold. Payment of variable expenses must also be evaluated. It is important that you contact a family law attorney to ensure your interests — and those of your children — are protected.
