How is child support calculated in Missouri?

26628277_S.jpgThe end of a marriage which has produced children inevitably leads to many questions on the part of the divorcing couple: spousal support issues, custody and visitation rights, asset distribution, and more. One question that also needs to be addressed is how to determine who should pay child support, and how much should be paid.

What are some of the considerations to calculate child support?

12441491_S.jpgIn Missouri when a couple have had children and later decide to part ways -- through divorce, legal separation or otherwise -- a court can become involved in establishing the arrangement by which either or both parents incur a continuing obligation to financially support their offspring through child support payments.

4555545_S.jpgResidents of Missouri, like other Americans across the country, know that divorce, custody and child support battles can be difficult and agonizingly stressful situations for people to find themselves in. On top of all that stress, it turns out that it can only take a simple clerical error to make the situation all the more traumatizing.

7917782_S.jpgWhen a couple with children divorces, both parties may agree on co-parenting agreements or they can experience a situation far less amicable if these decisions are left up to the courts. Parents do not always agree with a judge's ruling, but they should remember that the best interests of the child are always focused on when courts rule on matters of both custody and child support. This is true whether you live in the state of Missouri or elsewhere in the country.

A list to be avoided

10417921_S.jpgChild support is an important component of any divorce involving children. For clients in St. Charles, the amount is determined by a formula contained in the Missouri statues. The amount is calculated by various factors including the incomes of the parents and the custody time or parenting plan. Child support obligations are often contentious when parents lose sight of the purpose of the payment: it is for the care and support of the child.
