Child Support

Child support money

Separating or divorcing parents may disagree on many issues, and child support is sometimes no exception. The law is clear though in its intent to provide financially for the needs of the child, and with few exceptions, both parents are deemed responsible for those needs. If the parents cannot mutually agree on the issue of child support, to what extent each parent fulfills that duty is determined by statutory guidelines in the Ohio Revised Code. (See generally, R.C. §3119). Child Support is paid by the Obligor to the Child Support Enforcement Agency, (CSEA), who distributes the support award to the Obligee.

Child support is calculated by numerous factors, including, but not limited to:

  • The number of children born of the relationship
  • The gross income of each parent
  • Who provides health insurance for the child(ren) and the medical needs of the child(dren)
  • Child care expenses
  • Spousal Support, if any
  • Number of children of each parent outside of the relationship for whom support is paid.

Whether you are the custodial or noncustodial parent, or if you are engaging in a shared parenting plan, it is important that you ensure that the calculations are made correctly so that you are protected from unfairness. As with most issues in family law, child support can be a challenging, confusing, and frustrating issue for all involved.
