Determining the Amount of Child Support
Determining child support requires entering income, expenses and other information into a “calculator.” However, the accuracy of that final amount is only as good as the data provided. Parents who are self-employed or business owners and lack a W-2 may try to hide income. They might own rental property and generate supplemental income that they do not report.
In those cases, I combine my experience and attention to detail with the expertise of financial professionals. Discovery is often needed by subpoenaing financial records and taking depositions.
Far too much is at stake to ignore the most minor of details. Your children are entitled to maximum child support under state law.
How Long Does Child Support Last in Missouri?
Under Missouri law, child support continues until a child reaches the age of 18; however, if the child remains in school after age 18, the child support obligation will continue until the child reaches age 21. In addition, orders can be entered that address how the parents will pay for the child’s college expenses, as well as a child’s sports, private school and activities.
