If you face a divorce involving children or aren’t married to your children’s other parent, child support is an important financial consideration that is likely to make a serious difference in your children’s post-divorce future. If you have questions or concerns regarding child support, it’s time to consult with an experienced Greenville divorce attorney today. 

The Factors Involved

Every state in the nation finds that both parents are financially responsible for raising their children, and upon this finding, child support systems are based. Child support in South Carolina is calculated according to state guidelines that take all of the following into careful consideration:

  • Both parent’s incomes and financial assets
  • The number of overnights each parent has with the shared children
  • The standard of living the children enjoyed prior to divorce
  • Any special needs any of the children may have

Generally, the parent with whom the children live primarily receives child support from the other parent, but even if you split your time with your shared children equally, the higher earner will likely owe the other child support. The state’s motivation is always in the best interests of the children involved.
