Guidelines for Child Support Laws

When the court sets its child support judgment, it examines the gross income of the parties. There is normally a specific formula that is used to establish child support payments but there can be exemptions to the formula. If there is an exemption to normal guidelines, the court must provide its reason for deviation.

Your gross income can include your:

  • Salary
  • Tips
  • Bonuses
  • Pension
  • Worker’s compensation
  • Unemployment insurance benefits
  • Trust income
  • Social security benefits
  • Commissions
  • Capital gains

    “William Hoskovec is a spectacular attorney. He's extremely honest with his practices and prices, he took time to answer all my questions as well as made sure I was comfortable going into court by explaining everything. There wasn't a day that I thought he was unprepared or didn't care about my case. He answered all of my family members questions as well, and has been quick to respond to all e-mails even after my divorce was finalized. I'd recommend him to anyone needing a divorce attorney.”
