Child Support Question
My son's father and I are going through child support issues. We were never married. We are trying to do an uncontested Time sharing agreement. My question is in Child support agreed upon between us or does the child support get calculated with the state child support schedule?
The child support guidelines are all available online now. The form actually does the math for you. Go to the Supreme Court's site, and look for family law forms.
Comment: It usually goes through the child support guidelines
When we went to court, we already had the child support amount worked out. At first the judge wasn't going to approve it, but it turned out that the amount we had worked out was almost the same as what the guidelines said, so it went through. So it seems like there is some leeway if everyone agrees, and it is enough to take care of the children.
