Are Your Paying/Receiving The Right Amount Of Child Support?
Whether you are the payer or the recipient, child support can be a significant part of your budget after divorce. Sometimes it takes a lawyer’s help to determine those payments accurately.
At Katzman & Katzman, P.C., in Indianapolis, our firm has more than 30 years of experience in Indiana courts. We understand Indiana child support guidelines and how judges apply those guidelines.
How Child Support Payments Are Determined
In Indiana, child support is determined using a formula that considers your parenting time order, your income, your spouse’s income, the number of children supported, and health care and day care expenses. For most people it is a straightforward calculation. However, there are times when it can be complex, such as:
- When a parent is self-employed or owns a business
- When a parent is underemployed
- When a parent hides income
- When a child has special needs
If necessary, our attorneys use forensic accountants to ensure that a spouse reports his or her income accurately. We also protect your interests in matters such as support medications and enforcement.
