Payne & Associates, PLLC

As you move through the divorce process, you will have many questions about what the future will bring. For example, you may be concerned about paying or receiving child support.

With this in mind, it's important to understand the child support guidelines in your state. For example, the guidelines in North Carolina and South Carolina are not identical.

In short, child support guidelines are in place to provide courts with guidance on the amount of money one individual should pay to the other. However, keep this in mind: these are guidelines for a reason. The court can alter how much is paid based on a number of important factors.

As you prepare for divorce, you should turn some of your attention to matters of child support and child custody. This will ensure that you make all the right decisions along the way.

At our law firm, we know that you'll have questions about child support. This holds true no matter if you're paying child support or set to receive monthly payments from your former spouse. It's our goal to provide you with the guidance you need, every step of the way.

No two people are in the same exact same situation, which is why child support guidelines are often altered. What matters most is that you understand your situation and that you make decisions that put you and your child (or children) in the best position moving forward.

If you have at least one minor child with the person you are divorcing, you should expect the subject of child support to play a big part in your divorce.
