Child support payments
While Tennessee’s child support guidelines and calculator to determine payments is fairly straightforward, having a confident, informed attorney by your side ensures your child receives appropriate financial support, proper day care, and medical support. Many parents go through the child support process with the courts or a state agency without understanding how payments are calculated and what factors affect the amount of payment. I help clients understand how child support is determined. I also provide assistance with child support collection matters and the enforcement of court orders through contempt cases.
How can child support be changed?
Child support can be changed by filing a petition with the court to review the factors determining the amount of child support owed. For example, a change in a job, change in day care or health insurance costs, or change in the number of days a parent has a child are all reasons for consulting with a lawyer to see if child support should be modified.
