As a parent, one of your main concerns in a divorce is the protection of your children's interests. You understand how important it is to provide a way for your children to have as much continuity of lifestyle as possible and support from both parents. One way to ensure this is to secure a fair child support order.
Whether you will receive support or you will be the one to make these payments, you have the right to seek an amount you believe is fair. Some parents are able to come to a reasonable agreement on this matter out of court, but sometimes, a family court decides how child support will work. Whether you're heading to court or you'll be negotiating on this issue on your own, it is beneficial to learn more about what factors influence the calculation of these payments.
