When Children Are Involved, Get Legal Representation.

Caring for your children is the most important thing you can do. While you may fight about who was at fault for the break-up, the children are not at fault, and they must still be supported. All too often we see parents not supporting their children. If child support debt continues to pile up, you may have to take legal action. Seek the counsel of our experienced and professional Charlotte family law attorneys at Dummit Fradin to fight for you.

How Is Child Support Calculated?

Child support is calculated based upon the North Carolina child support guidelines. These guidelines establish rules for the calculation of child support and utilize "worksheets" to determine each parent's financial obligation. In North Carolina, both parents have a support obligation for minor children and the court considers factors to determine which parent pays child support and what amount.

These factors include:

  • The custodial arrangement (based on the number of overnights with each parent)
  • Each parent's income
  • Work-related child care expenses and health insurance expenses
  • Whether either parent has other child support obligations or other biological children living in the home

Once a child support order is established, the child support obligation usually continues until the minor child reaches the age of 18, graduates high school, or ceases to make satisfactory progress towards graduation, whichever occurs later. While these are typical triggers for termination of a child support obligation, if termination is not specified in the court order, it may not terminate automatically. It is important to hire an attorney to assist you in this process to ensure it is done correctly, and you pay only your fair share. Consult with a trusted and experienced family law attorney at Dummit Fradin.
