Creating An Effective Child Support Plan

In any divorce that involves children there are two main issues to be resolved: how to divide time with the children and how much financial support is reasonable or necessary. The court works under the presumption that a parent will support their child, even if that parent does not have physical custody. There are also standard parenting time guidelines that may or may not be reasonable given each parent's work schedules, physical capabilities and commitments.
