How Child Support Calculations Work in Nebraska
Child support is a necessary and essential calculation whenever the financial
well-being of a child is the subject of divorce. While both parents must
contribute to their child’s financial needs, in some cases, one
parent may be more financially able to provide for those needs. Because
of this, the court will carefully consider those aspects that affect the
parents’ abilities to provide financial support for the child.
Some of the factors which may affect child support calculations include:
The type of
physical custody shared between the parents
- The amount of time each parent spends with the child
- The total income earned by the parents, derived from all sources
- Health insurance premiums paid
- Other ordered support
- Mandatory employment dues/fees
- Retirement deductions
These are just a few of the aspects that will be considered. Nebraska provides
specific rules and guidelines to help parents and attorneys calculate
a reasonable and proper child support amount. In addition to the basic
child support, parents or the courts can consider additional support that
may be used to pay for expenses above and beyond basic needs. Those expenses
may include things like tuition and extracurricular activities.
Collecting Child Support When a Parent Doesn't Pay
Unfortunately having a properly prepared and entered child support order
may not ensure that you receive your child support or other support payments
on time. There are many times where one parent does not pay child support
or pays late after the bills were already due. A properly drafted and
executed child support order will allow you to seek redress with the court
and enforce your child support order. If your order is properly drafted
and prepared you may have many remedies available to you if you find yourself
collecting past-due child support. You can count on our Omaha child support
attorneys to represent you and enforce your court order to collect the
money that you are owed.
