Wisconsin child support guidelines set forth a procedure for calculating child support. The court looks at the following factors, among others, when making a child support determination:
Income of both parents
Number of children being supported
Amount of time spent with the child
Whether the parent is also supporting other children
Certain other factors such as daycare expenses, extracurricular activity expenses, health insurance premiums and other expenses may be cause for deviation from child support guidelines.
If you or the other parent of the child has experienced a significant change in circumstances, it may be possible to obtain a modification to your support award. Significant changes can include obtaining a large promotion, losing your job and certain other unique circumstances. We will analyze your situation and help you understand all of your modification options.
