Child support can be a contentious issue in family law cases.
Child support is typically calculated by looking at:
- Gross monthly income of both parents
- Number of days each parent exercises parenting time
- Cost of health insurance for the child
- Cost of work-related child care
- Number of children who will receive support
- Other children each parent supports

Whether you believe you are paying too much child support or not receiving
the proper support to which you entitled, you must have fifteen percent
variance to modify the child support amount. Our goal is to always ensure
that your child's interests are protected, and this includes enforcing
orders, preserving relationships, and determining a support amount that
is consistent with the child support guidelines in Tennessee.
Child Support Modifications
In many cases, you may be able to modify your support if you have experienced
a change in income or unexpected expenses. There is a minimum variance
that is required by law to modify child support.
Valid reasons for a child support modification include:
- Change in physical custody
- Increase or decrease in the income of either parent
- Additional childcare needs
- Increase or decrease in expenses for children
- Increase or decrease in the parenting time being exercised by the parents
- Emancipation of a child
