Parents have a legal obligation to financially support their children. In most states, including Nebraska and Iowa, child support is determined based on a number of factors outlined in the state’s statutory child support guidelines. It is important to consult our knowledgeable family law lawyers at Husker Law if you have considered filing an action for child support. We will make sure that all of the numbers included in the child support calculation are accurate.
Child support guidelines consider various factors including, but not limited to:
- Income of both parents;
- Child care costs;
- Health care costs for the child;
- Tax exemptions;
- Number of children living with both parents;
- Existing child support orders;
- Custody arrangement/time spent with the child.
While the child support formula may seem straightforward, complications often arise. This is especially true when a parent is self-employed or an independent contractor, or in other situations where financial data may be difficult to uncover or confirm. Additionally, under certain special circumstances, deviations from the child support guidelines may be appropriate. Our attorneys can answer your questions and guide you through these issues efficiently and effectively.
If a parent is not paying child support as ordered, we can help you with enforcement of payments.
