Child Support Guidelines In Iowa

In Iowa, the amount of child support that is to be paid from one parent to the other is set by a state statute and presumed to be what is best for your child. These child support guidelines incorporate a formula that is used to calculate the amount. The numbers that are used by this formula include the income of each parent, number of children and some other factors that may be applicable to the situation, such as health care or day care. Though these are standard calculations, the courts can deviate whenever it is deemed necessary for the children. In order to ensure you are getting the proper amount of child support, or are paying the correct amount, it is to your benefit to have an attorney on your side who can fight for your rights.
