Child Support

We Educate our Clients to Make the Child Support Laws Work for Them

Child support is the amount of money the Court orders one parent to pay the other parent every month for the support of the child or children. Tennessee now follows a Shared Income basis formula to determine how much child support should be paid in all cases.

Child support payments are usually made until children turn 18 or 19 if they are still in high school full time and living at home. Parents may agree to support a child longer. The court may also order that both parents continue to support a disabled adult child that is not self-supporting.

Although child support is based on Income Shares guidelines, there are many factors that can affect the ultimate amount of support. Understanding the nuances of child support laws can often help either the payor or the payee benefit from child support litigation. We educate our clients in order to make the child and spousal support laws work for them.
