CHILD SUPPORT

Both parents have an obligation to support their children financially, and the court will usually order the non-custodial parent to pay a monthly support amount to the custodial parent. Courts utilize state guidelines to determine the amount of support, which is based on both parents' incomes, as well as the needs of the child, including costs of health insurance, child care, and any extraordinary medical expenses or other special needs. Child support usually lasts until the child turns 18, but may continue longer if the child goes on to a post-secondary school.
