Wilmington Child Support Lawyers

Child support in Delaware is mainly determined by the state's Child Support Formula and Guidelines. This formula takes into account:

  • Both parents' income
  • Child-related expenses
  • The percentage of custody each parent has
  • The number of children being supported

Family Lawyers Serving Wilmington And All Delaware

The formula is a fair one, but the calculation requires that the right information be entered, and that no relevant income is excluded. There is also the possibility, in certain situations, of deviating from court guidelines, when the special needs of individual children are taken into consideration.
