Determining Child Support
Generally, the non-custodial parent must pay child support since the custodial parent already provides a vast amount of support for the children. A judge will consider several factors when determining child support.
Some of these include:
- The needs and income of the custodial parent
- The ability and income of the parent who is paying child support
- The financial needs of the children, such as daycare, education, insurance, or other special needs
- The children’s standard of living before the divorce or separation
Both parties must provide a detailed account of their financial situation to the court, including their expenses and monthly income.
Determining Child Custody
A judge will also consider several factors before determining child custody and visitation. When it comes to children, a judge will always put their best interests first.
In a child custody case, a judge will consider the following factors when rendering a decision on custody and visitation:
- The age of the children
- The overall health and wellbeing of the children
- The children’s emotional ties to each parent
- The ability of each parent to provide emotional, physical, and financial care for the children
- Any history of substance abuse or family violence
- The children’s ties to the local community, school, or home
In some cases, if the children are older and more mature, a judge might consider their opinion as well. However, children cannot request which parent they wish to stay with since their choice might not necessarily serve their best interests.
