Child Support Follows A Formula, But Legal Guidance Is Still Recommended

Parents want to ensure that their children's financial needs continue to be met after a divorce. While determining child support follows a formula that is straightforward, certain factors may affect the amount. Choosing a skilled family law attorney can help ensure the amount of child support that is ordered reflects a family's unique circumstances.

At the law office of David L. Willis, P.C., in San Antonio, we assist clients with the full range of child support matters, including enforcement issues and modifications to existing child support orders.

Helping Parents Understand Child Support Guidelines

Determining child support payments for wage earners whose net income is less than $7,500 per month is a formulaic process. However, once a base amount of child support is determined, there is some latitude as far as additional support is concerned. Our firm will discuss with you factors that may entitle your child to additional financial support, such as:

  • Disability
  • Day care/child care expenses
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Uncovered medical expenses
  • Other needs
