Help For Fathers Who Have To Pay Child Support  

Child support means a fixed amount of money that one parent pays to another parent after the couple is divorced to help cover the cost of raising their dependent children. Child support is believed to be an obligation people incur when they become fathers. When you are married and are living with your wife and children, then it is not difficult to see the needs of your children as they grow up in front of your eyes.

However, after divorce things get changed, divorce effect children deeply and it is important that you maintain your obligation by providing minimum financial assistance that the children may require to meet their daily needs.

Every state and every country has its own way of calculating the amount of child support an ex-spouse is required to pay based on federal regulations. There are different child support rules for different types of custody. In primary custody it is the responsibility of the other parent to fulfill the non-custodial parent’s financial responsibility. In case of joint custody, the amount of child support each pays is calculated by the court considering the percentage each parent contribute to the couples joint income and the percentage of time each parent has physical custody of the children.

Each state uses its own federal law to calculate child support due from parents largely based on their income and expenses but child support payment may also include healthcare costs, education costs, and food costs. Normally the court will take into account issues like the standard of living of child prior to divorce, the specific needs of the child, the resources of the custodial parents and non-custodial parents ability to pay. The court believes that children should not suffer a loss in standard of living and therefore, child support may be in excess of the amount actually needed. According to law the child support lasts till the child becomes major or he becomes self-supporting. Child support also ends when the child is adopted by some other parent who is not related to child biologically.
