When parents divorce, who pays for the following?
- And all the other things that children need?
As a parent, you want to do what’s right for your children. But sometimes you (or your ex-partner) are constrained by finances, distance, or other factors. The truth is, there’s a fine balance between doing what’s right and doing what’s financially feasible. This is why real-world concerns and necessities so often influence child support arrangements in Connecticut.
What Does the Law Say About Child Support in Connecticut?
Connecticut courts publish guidelines for statutorily required child support payments. Many factors determine these payments, such as:
- Income levels.
- Present and future earning potential.
- The number of children involved.
Courts only set the “baseline” for child support, not the final amount. Attorneys can recommend a deviation from the baseline after documenting and presenting evidence in an evidentiary hearing. Courts will only accept these recommendations after a thorough review from both sides.
