How Much Will I Pay in Child Support?

Figuring out child support payments depends on a range of factors. Alabama has its own system for calculating child support, which takes into account the financial situation of the custodial parent and noncustodial parent. Among the considerations in determining support are:

  • Income of each parent
  • Day care costs
  • Alimony and child support costs from previous marriages
  • Health insurance costs

Your role in the custody of your child will be a major factor in child support. You may pay less in child support if you share custody, as you will have a more active role in the child's day-to-day life.

At The Law Office of Brad Hawley, LLC, we know child support can be a frustrating topic. Our attorneys are experienced in working with parents on child support agreements in Prattville and throughout Alabama.

Can I Change My Child Support Payments?

It is possible to modify child support. Most often, this is the result of a change in a financial situation for one of the parents. Both sides must agree to make changes in payment, and a judge must sign off on the agreement. Common reasons for changing child support include:

  • Change in income
  • Job change
  • Cost of living increase
  • Changes in the needs of the child

It is also possible to get a temporary child support modification. This can be brought on by factors such as a medical emergency or a temporary hardship such as one parent losing a job.
