Clarksville Child Support Lawyers
Setting or Modifying Child Support Obligations in Clarksville and Surrounding Counties
All parents are expected to financially support their children, whether married, divorced, cohabiting, or living apart as never-married individuals. Thus, in any divorce or where a child is born to unmarried people, child support becomes an important issue. While the amount to be paid can be disputed, the need to meet this financial obligation on the part of any parent is mandated by law and governed by Tennessee’s Department of Human Services for Tennessee and by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services for Kentucky.
At The Law Office of Taylor R. Dahl, our legal team can assist you in determining child support payments in a pending divorce or after paternity has been established by the courts, as well as in enforcement actions and modifications. We are well-versed in the law, how support payments are calculated, and under what circumstances support payments can be modified.
How is Child Support Determined?
Tennessee’s child support guidelines provide a formula that takes into consideration the number of children to be supported, the combined gross income of the parents, and how much time the child spends in each household. These calculations will vary when parenting time is equal between parents or when each parent has custody of one of two or more of the children they share. Other factors may also affect the calculations, such as medical/dental insurance payments, uninsured medical costs, and childcare costs for parents who work or are pursuing education or training to advance their employability or current careers.
Kentucky’s child support guidelines likewise provide a formula that takes certain factors into consideration.
If you need help with any aspect of child support, including the need to enforce it when the other parent has become delinquent or to have it modified due to a substantial change in your circumstances, you can count on our team to work diligently on your behalf. We can advise you on the correct amount of child support and prepare your case to go before the court. We have done this service on behalf of countless mothers and fathers in Clarksville and surrounding counties.
