Child Support

How Does Child Support Work in Tennessee?

In the State of Tennessee, Child Support Guidelines and the Child Support Worksheet and Calculator are used to determine a fair amount. These guidelines and worksheets aim to provide both parties and the court a fair and balanced recommendation. Calculating child support takes the needs of the children, earnings, assets and needs of each parent into consideration.

Is Child Support Fair?

Child support is a hot issue for many parents. Tight budgets, distrust and emotions in the midst of a divorce add to the stress which a family must endure. Above all, Gamut Legal makes every effort to ensure child support remains fair, reasonable, and simple. Similarly, support should always remain reasonable because if support is set too high the children will suffer consequently.

Calculated Factors

Two primary factors driving a calculation include the parents’ income and time a parent spends with their children. Additionally, medical expenses, insurance, educational, costs, and the needs of any other children are factors in setting support. Consequently, if you are the parent who provides much of the financial support to your children, you may get credit for making that effort. Furthermore, that effort could lower the amount you pay in support.
