Child Support

Tennessee law requires that in any case involving custody of a child, an appropriate amount of child support must be set to provide for the basic necessities of a child.

Tennessee currently uses an Income Shares approach to child support which calculates support based on the income levels of each parent. In addition, the calculation of support can include the amount spent for work-related childcare, recurring medical expenses and medical premiums paid to insure the child.

The calculation of child support also takes in to consideration, the number of days each parent spends with the child. For parents that may have other children for which they are under a court-ordered support obligation, the calculation is adjusted to account for that obligation.

It is very important to make sure your attorney is familiar with the Tennessee Child Support guidelines. The guidelines are very complicated to understand and you should always rely on an experienced attorney to provide you with advice as to what your rights are. Modifications are also available under the guidelines, but only in limited circumstances.
