Why Is Child Support Ordered?

In Tennessee, child support is order to cover what the state considers to be the basic needs of the child. This covers such items as food, clothing, shelter, and education and is considered to be what is called the Basic Child Support Obligation. This obligation also includes variable costs that include health insurance, medical expenses, daycare expenses, and even expenses that happen regularly that may be considered “extraordinary.”

How can a calculator help to determine what your ordered obligation may be? Here are the factors that must be considered:

  • Determine what your gross income is and then look at your adjusted gross income for total responsibility. The easiest place to find this information is on your latest tax return.
  • You’ll also need these figures from the other parent that is involved in your case.
  • Combine the adjusted gross income of both parents to determine what the anticipated child support order will be.

Keep in mind that the minimum child support obligation is $100 per month. This exists for parents with a combined adjusted gross income of just $150 per year.

Can Variable Expenses Be Anticipated?

Your Clarksville attorney can also help you look at the variable expenses that may be added to the basic obligation of child support. This calculator can help you determine the addition of typical variable expenses, such as health insurance. With child support, however, there are almost always unanticipated costs associated with an order, such as a medical expense or a change in needs that can dramatically change the obligation.
