The awarding of child support can be a stressful and sensitive issue. In Virginia, the determination regarding child support is generally governed by a standard formula that looks at the income of each parent and combines it with the amount of time the parent has physical custody of the child to arrive at a support figure. That figure can then be modified up or down based upon a number of different factors. Because so many different factors are involved in determining child support, no cases are the same. It is essential for your attorney to look at all areas of your case to determine what is reasonable, likely and possible for your case.
