In many situations where couples divorce, child support must be determined as part of the divorce settlement. Like so many other aspects of divorce, child support issues can be disputed and the battles between parents can get very intense.
Although most parents want what’s best for their children, they can’t always agree on what that is, especially when it comes to making payments to support those children. At Ronald Johnston Family Law we are divorce lawyers in Portland Oregon that are ready and able to help both mothers and fathers in matters of child support.
One important thing to understand regarding child support is how the state of Oregon calculates a child support payment. Oregon bases payments primarily on the needs of the child, the income of the parents and the established schedule of parenting time that has been agreed upon. The courts can consider other factors, but they will mainly rely on these three things to make their determination.
