Courts determine child support by following the formula laid out in Virginia Code §20-108.2. The formula accounts for gross monthly income of each party, work-related child care expenses, health insurance expenses, and the amount of time each parent has the child or children.

Factors vary widely as to how they affect support. For example, income may vary, or a party may have held multiple jobs. Other factors set out in the law that go beyond the formula may also apply.

Child Support Modifications

Child support may be changed upon a showing of a material change of circumstances which warrants such a change. For example, if the children are no longer in child care, support may be modified.

In addition, the state legislature makes periodic revisions to the child support calculators. The last revisions went into effect July 1, 2014. If you have an older order, you may wish to have us review your child support figures to see if changes in the law would apply to your situation.

A Virginia Spousal Support Attorney Attending To Every Detail

Spousal support (also known as alimony) is based on income, expenses, spouses' needs, ability to pay, lifestyles established during the marriage, marriage length and adultery issues. Formulas can help determine the amount. However, they may or may not be used, depending on the circumstances surrounding your specific case.

Many times, income does not come from a periodic paycheck. Business owners present unique circumstances requiring an understanding of basic business operation and accounting. When owning a business, frequently business income and personal funds mix together with business revenues paying for daily living expenses. We have the understanding of these complexities to obtain the best outcome for our clients, regardless of which side of the ledger they sit.
