At Amy M. Levine & Associates, our attorneys guide custodial and noncustodial parents through child support calculations relating to divorce and paternity.

Calculating Child Support In Ohio

In Ohio, child support obligations are calculated based on multiple factors, including:

  • Both parents’ monthly income
  • Any child support paid for children from a previous marriage
  • The noncustodial parent’s alimony obligations
  • Monthly costs of day care, school, health insurance and other expenses for the child
  • The number of children being supported

Divorce lawyer Amy M. Levine has extensive experience working with parents of special needs children. Our firm understands that caring for a child with special needs requires extra time, care and financial support. We help clients in Franklin County and the surrounding areas reach child support arrangements that reflect that additional care.

How Can I Make Sure My Child Support Order Is Fair?

To ensure that child support obligations are fair and reasonable, it is essential to apply the formula correctly. This involves a thorough understanding of both partners’ income and all expenses relating to raising the child.

At Amy M. Levine & Associates, we have extensive experience representing the interests of clients engaged in disputes over child custody. We will conduct a thorough review of all necessary financial information and aggressively advance your position. Our goal is to ensure your child receives the support they need and you are not overburdened by excessive support payments.
