Indianapolis Child Support Lawyers

Following a divorce in Indianapolis, both parents are required to provide their children with financial support. Whether you were awarded sole custody, are the non-custodial parent, or share joint custody, the family lawyers at our Indianapolis law firm will make sure you are aware of your legal rights and are treated fairly under Indiana’s child support guidelines.

The court may order either parent or both parents to pay a certain amount to reasonably support their child. Many factors are used in determining the child support amount in Indianapolis, and some of these include:

  • The financial resources of the custodial parent
  • The financial resources of the non-custodial parent
  • The standard of living before the divorce
  • The child’s educational needs
  • The child’s physical and mental health conditions

In most cases in Indianapolis, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the custodial parent who has the child the majority of the time. The judge will consider the above factors when determining the amount of child support to be given. Child support is usually paid until the child reaches the age of eighteen unless the child gets married, is self-supporting, or is emancipated before reaching that age.

Indianapolis Child Support Attorneys

Child support is one of the most contentious family law issues in Indianapolis, and as a result it is highly recommended that you enlist the help of a qualified and experienced Indianapolis family law attorney. Most state child support laws do not take into consideration extracurricular activities of the children and the non-custodial parent’s living expenses (rent and mortgage costs), things that can result in having a child support amount that is too high or too low. The parent’s income, the number of children, and the amount of time children spend with each parent are the main determining factors in child support amounts in Indianapolis, so you will need to consult a skilled family lawyer who can help convey to the judge any special circumstances that may need to be addressed when determining the child support amount.
