Child support is related to child custody orders as well as to parents income. It applies to children until their 18th birthday or until graduation from high school. Child support is normally determined by way of a state formula that takes into account the following factors:

  • Income of both parents (at earning capacity)
  • Number of overnights that a child will be with each parent according to a parenting plan
  • Number of children

Simple computer programs can easily perform the calculations that will determine how much child support is expected in a typical divorce or separation. However, a computer program cannot take into account special circumstances that may exist in your family, such as the following:

  • Special needs of a child with autism or any other disability, or learning disabilities
  • Special circumstances that prevent a parent from working at full earning capacity

Consult with a Greenwich Child Support Attorney

If you believe there is a valid reason for deviation from state child support guidelines in your family, contact a Connecticut family law attorney to discuss how best to pursue what your child needs.

Talk to a Greenwich child support attorney to discuss likely child support requirements that will emerge when your divorce or separation agreement is settled.
