Customized Solutions In Child Support Matters

The state of Ohio has established statutory schedules that guide parents and courts in child support matters. These are based on family income, including sources of income of the mother and father, salaries, overtime, bonuses, investment dividends, interests and self-employment.

The incomes of both parents will be compared to costs for the child, including day care, health insurance, taxes, cost of extracurricular activities and any existing support orders.

The court will take into account the custody and visitation arrangement in place, including which parent will be providing primary custody and residence, as well as how much time the other parent will spend with the child on a regular basis.

Child support payments generally continue until the child turns 18 or graduates high school. In some cases, certain payments can be extended to support a child attending college.
