Determining the Amount of Child Support

The non-custodial parent, or the parent who does not normally live with the child, is the one who will be paying child support. In Alabama, there are several factors that influence the amount of child support that needs to be paid. Different aspects of the non-custodial parent's situation are taken into account when deciding on the amount of child support that is due.

Child Support Child Support LawyerChild Support must be established and approved by the Court, with specific payment amounts, due dates for child support, and how it is to be paid to the custodial parent. Gossman Law Firm, LLC calculates child support according to the Alabama Child Support Guidelines, can recommend deviations to increase or decrease child support, and recommends payment arrangements. Attorney Richelle Gossman prepares and submits all child support forms to the Court, including Income Withholding Orders to have payment withheld from paychecks when applicable.

The following details are taken into consideration:

  • The income of both parents
  • Healthcare costs
  • Medical insurance costs
  • How many children each parent supports
  • Daycare and after-school child care costs
Can Child Support Payments be Modified?

If there has been a material change of circumstances or if your child’s needs have changed, it is possible to make modifications in child support. When you need help requesting a modification in child support, our Birmingham family lawyer can help.
