Who is Responsible to Pay Child Support, and How Much?

Child support attorney in Fairmont, Clarksburg, Morgantown and surrounding areas of West Virginia.

Both parents are responsible to support their children. Non-custodial parents are required by law to pay a reasonable amount of child support for the care of their children. This amount is based on income (relative to the custodial parent’s income), specific expenses, how many other children are present in the household or for whom child support is being paid, as well as the needs of the child. Typically, a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income will be determined to be payable to the custodial parent. The amounts vary based on many factors, but typically the parent with the higher income is expected to pay a higher percentage of costs toward the care of the child. You can learn more about the child support guidelines at the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources website.
