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 with 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 that 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.
