Anderson Child Support and Guidelines
The court will essentially look to the parent’s gross income and earning potential. But, aside from income, the court will consider expenses, health, assets, individual needs of the child, and any relevant information to the case. In short, child support figures are individual to every case and child.
Can I challenge the awarded amount?
It is difficult, but not entirely impossible. When it comes to support judgements, judges do have a bit of discretion. So, unless that discretion shows influence in one way or another, the appellate court will likely not overturn the decision. However, after making payments for some time, there is the potential to modify rather than overturn it. But, this is still not easy. In short, unless there is some extenuating circumstance, an award is not likely to sway.Therefore, it’s important that your case is dealt with correctly the first time. Ultimately, that comes down to having an attorney who understands your case and will fight for your desired end result. Every case is different, as is the outcome. But, having an experienced attorney in your corner can make all the difference in that outcome.
