Child support is usually a fairly dispassionate process with little room for dispute. Payments are calculated based on an equation set forth in Idaho's Child Support Guidelines. It is uncommon for judges to allow deviations from this formula. Our lawyers will help you avoid pitfalls and reach a fair child support arrangement.
Child support payments are calculated based on the physical custody arrangement and both parents' incomes and certain expenses. The higher the income of the paying parent, the higher the child support payments will be. As a result, some parents will underreport their actual income or voluntarily reduce their working hours in order to reduce their child support payments. If your ex-spouse attempts any kind of tactic to artificially reduce his or her child support payments, our attorneys will demonstrate to the court that your ex-spouse's child support amount should be adjusted accordingly.
