How to calculate child support in Virginia

Virginia law provides support guidelines that family courts use to calculate how much child support will be paid by one parent to another. In determining the amount one has to pay, factors that are taken into account include:

  • Custody and visitation arrangements
  • Income of both parents
  • Cost of health insurance
  • Child care expenses

Johnson Law PLC has the skill and flexibility needed to effectively represent you in and out of court. We understand exactly how child support is calculated and how spousal support is awarded in Virginia, and we can help you negotiate a favorable award that may deviate from the guidelines.

Understanding Virginia spousal support guidelines

Dividing a household income can be complex, especially when one spouse is dependent on the other. In these situations, the court may give one spouse the right to collect spousal support or alimony. In Virginia, alimony laws establish payment made from one spouse to the other either on a temporary or permanent basis. The amount of spousal support is made based on several factors, including:

  • Income of both parties
  • Education levels
  • Health
  • Standard of living
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Retirement benefits
  • Tax consequences of an award

At Johnson Law PLC, you can find a divorce attorney who helps you navigate within the legal guidelines, ambiguities, special circumstances and individual concerns of spousal support.
