What factors are considered in a child custody case?

In determining a child custody order, the court is required to consider any relevant factor that relates to the best interest of the child. Some factors that the court may consider include:

  • The wishes of each parent
  • The children’s wishes
  • The character of the parties and persons involved
  • The need to promote stability and continuity for the child
  • Issues of domestic violence
  • The relationship between the children and parents
  • Whether there are substance abuse issues

An attorney can help you gather evidence and witnesses to support your case.

How is child support determined?

In calculating the amount of child support to order, a court will consider several factors. These include:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The custody schedule
  • The financial resources of the parents
  • Allocation of tax benefits related to the children
  • Any special needs of the children

An attorney can help you calculate the amount of child support that is likely to be ordered in the case.

How can an attorney help?

Child custody and support cases are governed by specific laws and procedures. An attorney will help ensure that your case complies with the legal requirements and that the other party also plays by the rules. An attorney will advocate on your behalf for a result that serves the best interest of the children.

Shawnee Child Support Attorney

Children are entitled to financial support from both parents. We strive to get parents fair support orders to ensure their children’s needs are met.

Kansas and Missouri have strict child support guidelines. Judges in Johnson County, Jackson County, and Clay County, as well as in other counties, use formulas that consider a variety of factors, including each parent’s income, custody time and the number of children each parent is supporting to determine monthly child support obligations.
