Child Support Basics
Child support will likely become an issue after divorces in which one parent becomes the custodial parent. After custody is determined, the court will typically arrive at a certain sum of money that the custodial parent must pay on a monthly basis.
Child support also applies to parents of children who were never wed. There are different ways of determining who the main custodial parent is in these cases. There are also cases in which neither parent is a main custodian of the child or children and thus both parents must pay child support monthly to another person who is caring for the child – often a grandparent or other family member.

Child Support Orders
Child support orders are formal documents issued by the family court specifying a certain sum that must be paid every month. The major factors that go into calculating this sum include:
- How much income the non-custodial parent receives each month
- The number of children
- Any special needs of the child or children
The cooperation of both parents can make it significantly easier to determine a child support payment that is agreeable to everyone, keeping in mind that the purpose of child support is to provide for the overall wellbeing of the child.
