Know your options when it comes to child support

Pennsylvania residents who are going through a divorce have a lot on their minds. There are important issues to address in divorce cases, such as property division, alimony and child custody. An issue that is equally important is the determination of the amount and duration of child support payments.

Of all the issues in a divorce, the child support issue is the one that may lead to a high level of tension between the soon-to-be ex-spouses. Of course, all parents want what is best for their children, but in the middle of a divorce case it can be hard to see how paying money to your ex-spouse is in the best interests of the child. Many parents think that, sure, they are obviously willing to spend money on their child's needs, but they want to be in control of how that money is spent.

In some cases, the parties can reach an agreement about child support, among the many other issues in a divorce. The parties may agree that they will split responsibility for separate costs, or they may agree that one side is responsible for certain costs while the other is responsible for other costs. However, agreements aren't always an option for couples who, obviously, have problems with each other to begin with.

A court-ordered child support determination is probably the more likely result in many cases. A court will take a variety of factors into account when making a child support determination, such as how much each parent earns and what expenses are expected. At our law firm, we do our best to help make sure our clients know their legal rights when it comes to child support.
