A good starting point for people facing issues of child support is the spreadsheet used by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. In some cases, this spreadsheet is all that is required. In others, deviations from the spreadsheet may be necessary based on special needs or income issues. Of course, there are also questions that arise when one party is self-employed, and there are questions about what that person's actual income is.
An attorney or an accountant may find this spreadsheet fairly straightforward, but for many people, it can lead to more questions. I am able to answer those questions and guide you toward child support that makes sense for you and your child.
Nobody is enforceably obligated to pay child support unless a child support order is entered. Child Support orders are commonly entered in Divorce, Paternity, Guardianship, and Juvenile Deprived cases.
