Allentown Child Support Lawyer

Protecting the Best Interests of Your Child

Child support is the financial support one parent owes another to raise their child. In most cases, the parent with primary physical custody is the parent receiving the support award. However, this may not be the case if the parent with primary physical custody makes significantly more money than the other parent.

The Allentown family law attorney at Regan Law Firm has more than a decade of legal experience helping families with child support matters. If you are seeking child support or are a paying parent seeking assistance with a modification, we can help. Call us today to tell us about your case.

Common Issues in Calculating Child Support

In calculating the child support obligations, common issues that arise may include:

  • Income of the self-employed parent. This brings into question the expenses and deductions of the parent. For a more thorough discussion on this issue, see Determining Income for Support.
  • Healthcare expenses. Health insurance is paid for by both parents, with each paying a percentage based on their respective incomes. Any out of pocket medical expenses over $250 in a calendar year is again divided between the parents based on their respective incomes.
  • Daycare expenses. Daycare expenses get calculated into a child support order, with each parent paying a percentage based on their respective incomes.
