Child Support

In cases involving custody of a child, child support must be calculated and recorded.  Each parent must complete an income affidavit form stating the name of their employer, their gross income earned each month, and the amounts spent on health care and child-care.  Those numbers are then plugged into another document which incorporates the Alabama Child Support Income Guidelines.

The parents can use the guidelines in deciding on the child support amount or they may agree to deviate. Your attorney can explain the acceptable reasons to deviate the Court will allow.
