Child support is the monetary amount given by a parent to the other parent or guardian of their child.

The amount to be paid and the parent or guardian who will receive it is up to the determination of the courts.

How long does child support need to be paid for?

Children have the legal right to be supported by their parents until they are 18 years of age. This means that child support will be expected to be paid until that time unless otherwise ordered by a judge. In the eyes of the law children are legally emancipated from their parents at 18, however, there are special circumstances where a child may be supported even after that. If they are attending school at the age of 18, 19, or 20 a judge may order that child support be paid in order to further care for them. They will need to meet certain schooling guidelines and also be unmarried, not self-supporting and not in the military for a judge to grant child support after the age of 18.

How is the amount child support to be paid determined?

The amount of child support to be paid is determined by the judge. The judge handling your case will take several factors into consideration before deciding upon the final amount. The will factor in:

The gross income of both parents.

The number of children to be cared for with the child support.

The parenting time of each party, both overnight and day visits.

Who supplies health insurance for the children and what it covers.

Once the judge has taken all of these facts into consideration, they will then determine how much is to be paid in child support. Having qualified family law lawyers in Eugene on your side is a necessity when going through the child support process. Find info on Visitation Rights.
