Child Support is payment by one spouse to the other spouse for the benefit and support of the child or children following a divorce. Child Support can be ordered by the Court even if the parents were never married. Child support payments typically continue until the child turns 18 years old.
Child support cannot be discharged in bankruptcy and is not considered as income by the receiving parent, nor considered a tax deduction by the paying parent.

The amount of child support that a parent pays is determined by the Child Support Guidelines. When calculating the proper child support to be paid, there are a number of factors to consider that affects the child support that is ordered by the court. Some of those issues include, but are not limited to:
- The amount of overnights stays of the child with each parent
- The financial needs of the child such as day care expenses, medical / dental insurance, and uninsured medical payments
- The current income of both parents
In the event that circumstances with either parent significantly change, which may warrant a post-judgment child support modification, either parent may file for a modification hearing to change the existing child support court order. Modification requests are not typically well received by the other parent, and are often highly contested.
