How Is Child Support Determined?

There are a few factors to consider when determining child custody and child support. While some couples are able to mediate their child support, others may need assistance through litigation. Regardless of the path you take, Louisiana has guidelines in place to determine the proper amount of child support. These guidelines take into account:

  • Any prior spousal support or child support orders
  • Cost of childcare, such as daycare, nannying, or private schools
  • Insurance carried by non-custodial parents
  • Income of both parents
  • Amount of time each parent has physical custody of the child(ren)
  • Any extraordinary expenses.
