Both Parents Should Play A Role In Child Support
How Is Child Support Determined?
In Delaware, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that take into account factors such as:
- The number of children
- The income of each parent
- Child care costs
- Number of overnights per year
- Special needs of the children
While many child support cases are straightforward, there are factors that can add complexity to the situation. For instance, if one parent is self-employed, hiding income or otherwise obstructing the process, aggressive legal action may be called for.
