Factors that Affect Child Support
In Ohio, child support is determined primarily by a financial formula that calculates the amount of money to be paid monthly by one spouse to the parent who has primary custody. However, there are a number of factors that can impact the level of financial support.
If you’re faced with divorce in which children are present, Cincinnati family law attorney John Heilbrun can help you ensure that your rights and the interests of your children are protected. Please call The Law Office of John Heilbrun at 513-321-3940 to schedule your confidential divorce consultation.
While the Ohio Child Support Guidelines provide the calculation methods for establishing child support, Ohio courts are also tasked with acting in the best interests of children when determining child custody and child support. When awarding child support, courts may consider factors including:
- Discrepancies in the incomes between parents
- The custodial status of each parent
- Health care needs of a child and associated costs
Child support may be modified as children grow older and their needs change. Mr. Heilbrun is dedicated to protecting the best interests of children, and he can help you regardless of whether you’re preparing for divorce or are seeking child support modification.
