When children are involved in divorce proceedings, courts in North Carolina will make a decision regarding how much child support should be provided by a parent, if at all. Child support is provided by the non-custodial parent to support the expenses that accompany raising a child.
If you and your spouse have decided to file for divorce, one of you may have to pay child support. An experienced Raleigh child support attorney can help you through the process of seeking child support if you are the custodial parent, or minimize payments if you do not think you can afford the requested amount of child support. The lawyers at Marshall & Taylor PLLC are prepared to help you throughout all of your child support needs.
Factors in Determining Child Support
Several factors will play a role in determining how much child support a parent will have to pay. Some of these factors include the following:
- Income level
- Time spent with the child
- Number of children
- Educational costs
