The Division Of Time In Columbus Child Custody And Visitation Can Affect Child Support

The Division of Time in Columbus Child Custody and Visitation Can Affect Child Support

There is absolutely a relationship between the amount of time each parent will spend with the children after a divorce, and the resulting impact on child support.  There are established child support guidelines in Ohio.  The guidelines carry out computations up to approximately $150,000 in annual income, but we often see cases where this threshold is exceeded.  What happens then?

The conversation usually begins with “guideline” child support.  However, if time is to be evenly distributed between each parent, many couples may elect to forgo child support.  There are so many variables to consider in Columbus child custody, visitation and support cases, such as the income of each parent, the history of the role of each parent during the marriage (did one parent stay home while the other worked?).  If one parent is spending less time or has physical custody less than 50% of the time child support is usually ordered if the case winds up before a judge or magistrate.

This is where experience comes into play.  I have more than 30 years of experience in child custody, visitation and support cases, and am able to provide my clients with insight and alternatives that save time, money, and emotional upheaval.  These are sensitive issues, but they are also financial realities that will go forward long after the divorce or dissolution is completed.  If you would like additional information about how child support is calculated or wish to speak with an experienced Columbus family law attorney I invite you to call me at (614) 289-1227.
