Determining the amount of child support to be paid is basically a mathematical process involving various factors. It is vital that the child support agreement accurately reflects the needs of your children. Let us help you take action to ensure that the best interests of your family are protected!

Attorney Dennis Slate's success has earned many recognitions, including:

Custody Arrangements Play a Major Role in Child Support

Child support and child custody go hand-in-hand. When both parents have equal joint custody and equally share the cost of raising the child, it may not be necessary for either parent to pay child support. On the other hand, if one parent has sole custody and carries the major responsibility of the cost and care of the child, the other parent may need to contribute a significant amount.

Judges make determinations on custody and support based on the best interests of children. However, you cannot assume that a judge's assessment of your case will accurately reflect your child's needs. With our Pearland divorce lawyer advocating for your rights and carefully outlining the needs of your child, you may work to ensure that you secure a favorable child support arrangement.

At Dennis M. Slate, Attorney at Law, our divorce attorney in Pearland helps clients fight for fair child support and helps them ensure that their children may be adequately provided for after divorce. In more than 13 years of legal practice, our team has consistently won family law cases and secured positive resolutions for our clients. We are proud of our ability to provide a high quality of legal service at a lower cost than the large downtown law firms. Contact our firm today and explore your legal options with us!

Calculating Child Support Payments

The calculations for child support are based on a net resource figure. This number is calculated by deducting federal income tax withholding, Social Security withholding, and medical insurance premium cost for the children from gross income from all sources. The net resource number is then multiplied by a percentage, which is based on the number of children involved.

Net resource multipliers include the following:

  • 20% for 1 child
  • 25% for 2 children
  • 30% for 3 children
  • 35% for 4 or more children

Divorces can be one of the most difficult times for parents and children. However, we know that it is also one of the most vital times for a family, especially for the children. Child support may be only one of the issues you will face in the course of a divorce procedure and after. When it comes to protecting your rights as a parent and the best interests of your children, trust a firm with over a decade of experience and success in handling complex family law cases.

We are committed to protecting our client's best interests. Schedule your consultation with us today and learn more about how our divorce lawyer in Pearland may help you secure a fair support arrangement.
