How are child support payments calculated in Tennessee?

In a separation or divorce, the court will decide how much child support to award the Primary Residential Parent. Tennessee law dictates that parents are required to provide child support until the child turns 18.

This arrangement is determined by a number of factors. A family court judge will look at:

  • The number of children involved
  • Each parent's income
  • The cost of health insurance
  • The child's specific financial needs

Other variables could come into play. For example, if you have a pre-existing support order in place for another child, that order could change the amount you're required to pay.

You can also seek child support reductions if you lose income or there have been other changes within your arrangement. Meet with a child support lawyer today to discuss the specifics of your situation.
