Child Support

Child Support refers to a sum of money paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent.  Which party is the custodial parent or non-custodial parent for child support purposes is determined by the custodial arrangement between the parties.  


The amount of support is determined by a computational formula that is derived from the Child Support Standards Act.  Application of that formula results in the "presumptively correct" amount of support to be paid unless the court uses its discretion, based upon certain factors, to adjust that amount.   

In addition to basic child support, parents are also required to contribute to additional expenses such as health insurance, unreimbursed medical expenses, and  childcare expenses.  Parents may also be required to contribute education expenses between the parties.

Jen Morton was the best! I highly recommend her if you are looking for an attorney who takes the time to explain and actually counsels her clients. In my opinion she makes a great attorney because she actually cares! As a trial attorney she is a shark and definitely a force to be reckoned with! I so appreciate everything she and her team did for me. Special shout-out to Alexis and Lindsay for all their help and professionalism.
