RI Child Support Services
Family law matters can prove difficult in some cases where emotions are high, and the current status of both parents is not amicable. In these cases having an experienced family law attorney on your side can dramatically impact the outcome of your case. Because of the child support laws and guidelines that differ from state to state, knowing your attorney is familiar with the laws of your locale is important. It’s also important to inquire about the track record of your attorney before retaining their services. We recommend utilizing experienced family law attorneys who are familiar with the roadblocks commonly faced in family law issues. Gathering as much information as possible regarding your case will help your legal counsel present a strong argument on your behalf and certainly increase your chance of receiving the child support judgment you desire.
Important Factors in Child Support Calculation
Many parents considering divorce or legal separation have questions regarding the calculation of child support. The official formula for child support orders is based on the gross income for both parents. The gross income for each parent undergoes a series of deductions including health insurance, pre-existing child support orders, other minor dependents and more. There are also flexible adjustments, which can be deducted from the gross income amount. Flexible deductions may include contributions to retirement, life insurance premiums, and marital debts. It’s important to note that a Rhode Island Child Support judgment is not limited to the state of Rhode Island.
For example, if the child changes residency to a new state the orders set in Rhode Island are still effective in the new state. However, the amount of payments can be adjusted based on the new states requirements. This is extremely important in cases that include the amount of time the child spends with both parents, custodial and non-custodial.
