What Factors Influence Child Support Agreements?

Even after their parents separate, children still have the right to support from both parents. Child support agreements ensure that children can still benefit from parental support, regardless of their living arrangements. Generally, child support agreements are meant to help the custodial parents maintain the standard of living children were used to before the divorce.

A variety of factors determine how much one party will be required to pay in child support, including:

  • The income of the non-custodial parent
  • The income of the custodial parent
  • The specific needs of the child or children, such as daycare or medical care
  • The ability of either parent to make payments
