Focusing On The Best Interests Of Your Children In Determining Support

Determining child support amounts various factors that include income, debts, health insurance and custody/visitation agreements, specifically who has physical custody and the spouse who is the noncustodial parent.

The transition from marriage to divorce creates uncertainty, specifically when it comes to making ends meet and maintaining a lifestyle that you enjoyed while you were married. Statutes exist to determine appropriate spousal maintenance amounts.
