Child Support

When parents with minor children divorce, the court requires the parties to address the issues of child support for the children.New Mexico child support guidelines are based upon the combined gross income of both parents. When the combined income is high, child support must be determined on a case-by-case basis.This involves establishing the certain defined needs of the child, including the lifestyle that they have enjoyed and the amount of time that they have spent with each parent.

There are many factors that might cause a court to deviate upward or downward from the standard child support guidelines, including: private school tuition, special medical needs, health insurance,child care, parenting schedule, cost of activities, etc. It is critical that all evidence supporting the child support case be presented to the court in an organized and proper manner.
