Divorce changes the way you support your family because it puts some of the financial decisions in the hands of the Court. We are here to advocate for you in the determination of you and your former spouse’s financial contributions for your child’s well-being.
The State of Oklahoma has written guidelines for judges to follow in child support determinations. The judge must consider a number of factors when deciding how much child support each parent must pay, including:
It is possible that both parents can reach an agreement regarding the amount of child support. However, the Court still must find that the agreement is in the best interest of the children.
Courts will consider a motion to modify a child support order if a parent can prove a material change in the circumstances has occurred. A parent can show this by proving the needs of the child have changed or the income of either of the parents has changed.
Child support can stress a parent financially after a divorce has concluded. We can help you eliminate that stress by making sure the Court approves a plan that is in the best interest of you and your children.
