Hilliard Child Support Lawyer
Defending Your Child's Best Interests for Over a Decade
Divorce can be an emotional and contentious experience in its own right, but when the needs and future of the couple’s children come into play, it could reach an entirely new level. At Dailey Law Offices, our Hilliard child support attorney works tirelessly with her clients to ensure that they are able to maintain as much normalcy as possible during these life changes.
Child support may become an issue during a divorce, while establishing custody orders if the parties are not married, or after orders have been issued. The obligor, or the person who is responsible for paying child support, is usually the party who has the higher income. If the parties are unable to agree on an amount of child support to be paid, then the court will order that the guideline amount is paid.
How Is Child Support Calculated in Ohio?
The guideline amount is a calculation based on both parties income with adjustments made for out-of-pocket health care expenses and local income taxes paid. The final award is based on this adjusted income in comparison with the number of children involved. The parties may agree to deviate child support upward, downward or even to zero. Child support can become a post-decree issue when there is a change in income of one of the parties.
