Finding The Right Financial Balance

A divorcing couple is tasked with separating one household into two — both emotionally and financially. Numerous issues require special attention such as finding a compromise around visitation, an equitable split in property division and determining the right child support amount.

In Ohio, child support is largely determined by a calculation. The primary factors in the determination of child support are the parties' incomes and the parenting time schedule. However, at Abney Law Office, LLC, we have extensive experience ensuring that the child support agreement is a fair compromise by examining all factors that could influence this determination.

Evaluating Numerous Factors

There are a multitude of financial factors that can dramatically impact child support costs, including:

  • Health insurance costs
  • Education costs
  • Special needs of the child
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Child care costs

These factors, and many others, can influence what is ultimately the determination of child support. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process and answer your complex questions along the way.

Determining A Party's Income

As income is typically the main factor when determining what child support payments will be, a knowledgeable lawyer will likely devote significant time and effort to correctly understand what the income actually is. For example, it might be challenging to arrive at an accurate determination of income for an individual who is self-employed. From offices in Canton, we will thoroughly investigate every factor possible during the determination of child support.
