Child Support in Southwest Ohio
Assistance from a knowledgeable Dayton lawyer
The purpose of child support is to ensure the children of divorced parents maintain a standard of living similar to life before the divorce. One parent typically pays the other parent a set monthly amount determined by the family court.
In Ohio, child support is calculated based on guidelines outlined by the state. These guidelines take custody orders, the financial circumstances of each parent and any necessary adjustments into consideration and use a formula to decide how much money is owed. They are also used for modifications that occur after the initial order is issued.
