Factors Involved in Support Decisions
For example, we are well-versed in resolving spousal maintenance and support matters. Factors involved in determine support payments often include the standard of living during the marriage, whether or not there was a prenuptial agreement in place, the earning potential of each spouse, and the length of the marriage, among other things.
When determining child support, the court uses a standard formula based on how much each parent is earning, the amount of time each parent spends with the child (largely based off of the custody agreement), and much the child will require for living expenses (taking into account medical needs, educational needs, and recreational needs, etc.).
