Establishing Child Support
Charleston Divorce Attorney
According to South Carolina law, once a married couple facing divorce determines
which of the two will have primary custody of their child or children,
child support payments must be determined. After the stress and high emotions
involved in child custody issues, it is difficult for most parents to
handle negotiating child support on their own.
With the help of our
Charleston divorce lawyer at Shaw Law Firm, you and your partner can mediate any issues, and we can
educate you on your rights and obligations as the obligor (the parent
who does not have custody) or the obligee (the parent who has primary
custody). The law has determined that the Income Shares Model will determine
the amount of child support
The Income Shares Model states that:
- Each parent is equally responsible for the financial needs of the child.
- The share of child support that each parent must pay is dependent on their
- Modifications may be made when the income of either parent changes or when
state guidelines are adjusted.
The payment that is determined initially may not be permanent depending
on income changes, unemployment, changing needs of the child, or changes
in state regulations. No matter what the scenario may be, if you need
to establish or modify a current child support order, contact us today.
We will work around the clock to resolve the issue quickly and with your
child's best interests in mind.
