Explanation Of Connecticut Support Guidelines From A Skilled Lawyer

Connecticut courts use a statutory formula and guidelines to determine the appropriate amount of child support to be paid by the noncustodial parent. Factors taken into account include:

  • Actual earnings of both parents
  • Earning capacity of both parents
  • Gross income of both parents
  • Allowable deductions
  • Combined net income
  • Deviation criteria allowed under the guidelines

Under appropriate circumstances, our firm works with experts who can accurately assign earning capacity. We will fight for you to make certain your child receives the payments he or she deserves.

Modifying Your Awards

If a significant change has occurred in your life, or the life of your former spouse, your child support and/or alimony award may be modified. Our attorney will walk you through the modification process and explain your options to you in terms you can understand.
