Child Support

Indianapolis Child Support Attorney 

Child support is an important aspect of ensuring the well-being and financial stability of children when their parents separate or divorce. In Indianapolis, Indiana, child support laws are governed by state statutes and guidelines. If you're seeking information about child support in Indianapolis, here are some key points to consider.

The Income Share Method of Child Support in Indiana

With custody decisions made, the settlement must then determine how the raising of children will be financed. The state of Indiana uses what’s called The Income Share Method in determining child support payments .

The Income Share Method is a formula that takes into account different factors, which include the gross income of each parent, the educational and health needs of the child, and other issues that go into making up a child’s standard of living. 

It’s presumed that children have the right to share in the lifestyle of their parents, and that a child’s opportunities after divorce ought to be equivalent—as far as is reasonable—to what they would be had the parents stayed or gotten married. 

Child Support Modification

Child support orders can be modified if there is a substantial change in circumstances that would warrant an adjustment. For example, if either parent experiences a significant change in income or if the child's needs change, a modification may be requested. It's important to file a formal request with the court to modify an existing child support order rather than making informal agreements with the other parent.

Enforcement of Child Support Orders

Enforcing child support orders is crucial to ensure that children receive the financial support they need. In Indianapolis, the Indiana Child Support Bureau, under the Indiana Department of Child Services, assists in enforcing child support orders. They can take various actions to enforce payment, such as wage garnishment, intercepting tax refunds, suspending driver's licenses, and even pursuing legal action for non-compliance.

Parental Responsibilities

Child support is separate from parenting time and custody arrangements. Regardless of the custodial arrangement, both parents are legally obligated to financially support their children. Non-custodial parents typically pay child support to the custodial parent. It's important to remember that child support is intended for the benefit of the child, not the custodial parent.

Seeking Legal Assistance

Navigating child support matters can be complex, and it's advisable to consult with an experienced family law attorney who specializes in child support cases. They can assist in calculating child support obligations, representing your interests in court, and ensuring that your rights and the best interests of your children are protected.
