Child Support and Finances

Whether you are a child's caregiver or a non-custodial parent, child support involves a number of important financial considerations. How much is a fair amount of money to pay for a child's upbringing? What about the custodial parent's income or ability to pay? What costs go into the child support calculation - and which ones don't? Findlaw's Child Support and Finances section explores how child support relates to other areas of financial life, such as income taxes and personal bankruptcy. It also offers information on child support and uninsured medical costs, child support modification in response to significant changes in income and more.
