Child Support Lawyer

Helping Parents Throughout Batesville

After you decide to get divorced or separate from your spouse, there are a number of different issues that you will need to resolve. If you have children, one of these issues will be determining which parent is responsible for paying child support. Your child support agreement is one of the most important aspects of your divorce, which is why you need to secure the services of an experienced lawyer to ensure your rights are fully protected.

Arkansas law imposes a duty on each parent to support their minor children. If a couple seeking divorce has a minor child, the parent who is ultimately awarded custody over their child may be entitled to receiving child support from the noncustodial parent. The amount of child support is typically determined according to a Family Support Chart.

Judges generally consider the following things to determine if a parent should pay child support:

  • Important needs for the child, like health insurance, education, day care, and other special needs
  • The income of the custodial parent
  • Which parent has the ability to pay
  • The living standards the child was used to before the divorce
