When parents of minor children divorce, the issue of child support is a vital concern. At the Mathews Group, LC, we understand that the well-being of your child is at stake, as well as your own financial stability in a child support dispute. Both Kansas and Missouri recognize child support as a right of children. Courts will use worksheets to determine the presumptive amount of support based on a variety of factors. However, child support calculations are complex and require accurate numbers from the start to reach a fair final result.
Personalized Service To Protect Your Child
When children are involved in a divorce, we take strides to help our clients protect the best interests of their children. The child support guidelines are intended to help ensure that both parents contribute to a stable environment for the child. Unfortunately, parents frequently disagree on how the money is spent within the household. While child support calculators and worksheets provide a presumptive range for courts to consider, analyzing the whole picture is important. We are skilled in analyzing the unique nuances of each household to arrive at a fair and reasonable child support calculation.
