How Child Support is Determined
Typically, child support payments are mandated by an acting judge, which both parents must comply with. In Louisiana, child support is determined by taking the number and ages of the children, and the necessary expenses for childcare. Common factors that determine child support payments:
- Where the child will live
- Quality of life before separation
- Existing medical expenses and conditions
- Educational costs
- Childcare costs
- Extracurricular activities
- The financial state of both parents
What If My Ex-Spouse Hasn’t Been Paying Child Support?
If your ex-spouse isn’t submitting child support payments as required, contact our team of child support lawyers in Lafayette. Unpaid child support can result in wage garnishments, among other penalties. A custody order is necessary in this case, even if you’ve both agreed upon a co-parenting schedule or verbal agreement about child support payments.
We’ll help you get the financial support your child needs through our compassionate and aggressive representation.
