If you and your spouse are getting a divorce and you share children, one of the issues you will have to discuss is child support. Child support in Missouri is based on a worksheet called the Form 14.

While it may seem simple, it is complex and depends on multiple factors. Contrary to popular belief, equal custody (50/50) does not automatically mean that no child support will be ordered.

Every case is unique and requires knowledge and application of multiple factors contained in a particular case.

It is highly advisable that you hire a St. Charles child support lawyer to help you discuss matters of child support, work with you to determine an appropriate child support number, and if necessary, prepare for court.

Navigating the Complexities of Child Support

At Smith Law Offices, LLC, we have over 30 years of combined experience and are very familiar with the way that the court works when it comes to family law matters. There are many different factors which are taken into account when determining child support.

The following will be taken into consideration when determining child support:

  • The income of both parties
  • The cost of day care
  • The cost of health insurance
  • The number of children involved
  • The time each party will be able to spend with the children involved

Typically, child support will be paid until the child has turned 18 years old and has graduated high school. However, child support can continue until age 21 if certain requirements are met.

If you are currently paying child support and a major change has happened in your life, it is important to keep making your payments until you are able to have a child support modification.

Retain a skilled St. Charles child support attorney to help guide you and offer you personalized aid may lead to a more positive outcome.
