Child Support Details

Divorce is mentally straining on everyone, especially the children involved. At Parks Zeigler, our attorneys in Virginia will work tirelessly to provide high-quality legal assistance, so your children receive constant financial support throughout the divorce procedure.

As can be expected, if you have children with your spouse, the divorce process will likely take longer to negotiate. The separation period is twelve months, even if the parties reach an agreement. Likewise, the child custody arrangement will have an impact on the financial issues for the family, as the calculation of child custody support can depend on other factors such as spousal support and the division of property that produces income.

Calculating Child Support in Virginia

When involved in child support cases, our experienced child support lawyers in Virginia will help you understand the relevant legal factors that are in play, how they may impact the case, and advise the best path forward for your situation. Four factors primarily affect child support calculations:

  • The gross income of each party
  • The custodial schedule
  • The costs of work-related to childcare
  • The costs of medical insurance for the children

These figures are plugged into a guideline formula. The guideline amount for child support is presumptively correct, and courts are required to start their analysis at the guideline amount. The Courts can deviate from the guideline figure based on other circumstances and factors but must make written findings for any deviation. Child support is modifiable based on a material change in circumstances. This means that, until the children are eighteen or graduate from high school, either parent can petition the court to change the child support amount based on a change in circumstances.

Confidence and comfort with your attorney are paramount when having to go through child support negotiations. Our team’s priorities are your legal interests and ensuring that this difficult process goes as smoothly as possible.
