Calculating Child Support

Child support cases can often be stressful because of the tensions involved. To simplify child support calculations, the state of Maryland has established specific guidelines that are used to determine how much responsibility each parent will bear for support.

The following will be considered when determining child support:

  • Each parent's income
  • Custody agreements
  • Any specific needs of the children
  • The proportion of a parent's income that will go to support


Reaching a favorable support plan, whether you are paying or receiving funds, is crucial to ensuring that you can provide for your children in the best way possible. My firm can help you throughout this process, from negotiating a beneficial child custody plan to building a strong case during support negotiations.

How to Modify a Support Plan

Life will continue to change after a divorce. An unforeseen change in circumstances, such as a substantial drop in income, may require that you change your support plan. With the help of a Howard County family lawyer, you can file a petition to ensure that your children receive the support they deserve. As your attorney, I can guide you through this process to help you secure a favorable outcome.
