If you’re preparing to get a divorce and children are involved, you’ll need to take child support into account. Louisiana has state-mandated child support guidelines, but they can get somewhat tricky if you:
- Or your spouse is an independent business owner who controls your own income
- Or your spouse have significant investments
- Have one or more children with special needs or a disability
Things can get even more confusing if you or your ex are thinking about moving out of state, or your combined income exceeds the state’s recommended guidelines for child support payments. Working alone, it can be difficult knowing what the “right” monthly payment actually is. While online calculator tools like this one might be able to help, we recommend you contact your legal counsel and then schedule a consultation with us.
