Are you facing divorce? Do you need to modify current child support decisions? Has a child support conflict complicated your divorce or paternity case? If any of these issues apply or if your former spouse has failed to abide by the child support obligations already determined by the court, you have the right to pursue legal action with help from an Evansville child support attorney at Biesecker Dutkanych & Macer, LLC. We have been trusted in Indiana since 1997.
How is Child Support Calculated in Indiana?
Indiana begins child support judgments by looking at each parent’s weekly gross income. Weekly gross income includes all Social Security benefits, overtime, bonuses, potential income, and any other non-exempt sources of income you may have. Excluded income such as Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF), food stamps, and SSI are not considered in child support payments.
Indiana courts also look at the following factors when determining child support:
- Each parent's financial resources and obligations
- The standard of living of your child prior to divorce
- Your child’s medical needs
- Your child's educational needs
Child support is primarily based on the custody ruling decided in a divorce or separation, and payments continue until the child turns 19 years old or becomes self-sufficient. During such an overwhelming and stressful time in your family, we promise to work around-the-clock to advocate for you and your rights. If you feel that you are unable to comply with your current payment amount, our team can help you seek a modification. No matter how complex your case may seem, our Evansville child support lawyers will be there with you to support you.
