Child Support

View my child support legal guide on Click Here

Calculation of child support is controlled by the Tennessee Child Support Guidelines.  Some of the things taken into consideration when calculating child support are:
  1. Number of days per year that each parent has visitation with your children.
  2. Gross income of the parties.
  3. Health insurance costs related to the child.
  4. Work-related child care costs.
  5. Uncovered medical expenses.
  6. Other qualifying children living in the home of the parents.
  7. Other qualifying children not living in the home of the parents and child support paid for those children.
  8. If a previous child support order exists, whether a significant variance exists between the old amount of child support and the new child support amount (generally speaking, a 15% = significant variance).
The items listed above are a generalization of child support calculation.  There are a number of other factors to consider before a final calculation can be obtained (i.e. self-employment deductions, sources of income, imputation of income, deviations from child support, etc.)
