Pursuing Fair Child Support & Spousal Support
In a divorce or paternity case, one parent may be required to pay child support to the other parent based on the state child support guidelines. These guidelines take into account factors such as each parent’s income, each parent’s share of custody, and special expenses.
Spousal support — commonly known as alimony — is also available in some divorce cases when one party has become financially dependent on the other. The rules governing spousal support are generally less rigid and more discretionary than the child support guidelines.
