Factors Considered by the Court
The court will always consider foremost the needs of the child or children. In any child support situation, the court will evaluate the monthly income of the mother and father and their income goes into a formula. We would argue that the most critical factor to affect child support is the time sharing order because the amount of support is calculated by the parties income ratio and then the income ratio is applied to the amount of overnight stays a child has with each party (Thus, if one partner makes double the amount of the other partner, then the income ratio applied will be 2/1).
