Child Support

South Carolina law requires parents to share joint responsibility for providing financially for one’s child or children. That being said, the court typically orders the non-custodial parent to contribute to the support of the minor child or children by financially assisting the parent with primary physical custody. The South Carolina Child Support Guidelines dictate the amount of support for the non-custodial parent to pay.

The guidelines consider the following factors:

  • Each parent’s gross monthly income
  • Number of children to be supported
  • Day care and health insurance costs
  • The number of overnights that the non-custodial parent conducts with the child

The court will make a decision based on these factors, thus necessitating the importance of you being adequately represented by an attorney with the experience and knowledge to gather and present this evidence to the court.

We can help you get child support from the non-custodial parent or help you pay a fair and equitable amount of child support by encouraging the family court to set a fair child support figure.     

Josh is an amazing attorney. He helped a friend of mine with a very detailed divorce, and she was overwhelmed by his compassion. In addition to the divorces, Josh handles adoption cases. I would highly recommend Josh and his team!! Chris P.
