To determine child support amounts, the court considers many factors such as the non-custodial parent's ability to pay, the number of children, the needs of the children, and the income of each party. While child support may be formula-driven, there is no formula for maintenance. It is based in large part on the standard of living established during the couple's marriage.
People's circumstances change and therefore modifications to orders or agreements regarding support or custody and visitation may become necessary. "Add-ons" for college education or extraordinary medical or educational needs are an example. I can help you resolve these issues as they arise.
Since many factors go into an award of support, it is all the more reason to hire an experienced, knowledgeable attorney to achieve your best end result.
