How Courts Calculate Child Support

Even with joint physical custody, the court may order one parent to make support payments. 

North Carolina family courts use a careful formula for arriving at an amount, considering factors such as:

  • Your incomes
  • Childcare costs
  • Health insurance premiums
  • Average household expenses
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent

The court makes every effort to be reasonable, but attorney Jim Warren will advocate for you every step of the way. For example, circumstances may warrant a deviation from the child support formula, such as your child’s special medical or educational needs. 

If you intend to request a deviation, you must provide prior notice to the court and submit evidence of your reasons for requesting the deviation. Our lawyer can assist you with these matters.

Modifying an Existing Child Support Agreement in North Carolina

Child support obligations end when the child turns 18, but they may extend to the age of 20 in some cases. At any point, you may require a change in the amount of support the court ordered, whether due to job loss, medical bills, or other extraordinary events. We can help you petition for a temporary or permanent modification and represent your case in family court.

What Does a Child Support Attorney Do?

Navigating the financial intricacies of child support with an ex-partner can be a daunting and emotional task.
