Ohio Child Support Attorney
When a couple gets a divorce, or a child is born to unwed parents, the
income that supported one household must now stretch to support two.
Although finances are now stretched, Ohio law requires parents to provide
financially for the care and support of their child. To that end, the
Court will determine and order appropriate child support in the best
interests of the child. The individual ordered to pay child support is
called the "obligor" and the recipient is called the "oblige".
the amount of child support is premised upon the combined gross
income of the parties, along with daycare and health insurance
costs for the child. It is important to have the advice of
a well-qualified attorney during legal proceedings and negotiations
to ensure that the child support ordered is correct and encompasses
all of the expenses of raising a child.
As of July 2008, Ohio law requires child support to also include the cost of
medical care ("cash medical support") for the child should neither
party have available private health insurance. The amount of the "cash
medical support" is dependent upon the income of the parties and federal
guidelines, and is in addition to the base monthly child support obligation
when no private health insurance is available. Remember, cash medical support
is only an issue when neither party is providing private health
insurance for the child. It is important when addressing child support maters
to understand the impact of this additional cost should private medical insurance
not be available through an employer or individual policy.
