Knoxville Child Support Attorney

In our society, it seems as though everyone knows someone who has been divorced. Often, well-meaning friends or family members may offer suggestions about whether you will be expected to pay child support or how much support you might receive. In reality, child support obligations in Tennessee are based on a formula, and the most effective way to understand how the law will affect your situation is by working with an experienced Knoxville child support lawyer.

At the law office of Montpelier, Cole, Della-Rodolfa & Ford, P.C., we represent individuals throughout East Tennessee in family law matters, helping parents understand their legal obligations and rights.

Factors That Influence Child Support

Determining child support payments is little more than a mathematical formula. However, an experienced attorney can help ensure the proper numbers are used in the calculation. We help ensure all numbers are accurately determined, including an accurate assessment of expenses and income from self-employed parents. Other factors that influence child support obligations include:

  • Both parents' incomes
  • Amount of time both parents spend with the children
  • Cost of day care
  • Cost of private school
  • Health care costs
  • Other children for whom the parents are responsible
