How the Child Support System is Manipulated
Although the Connecticut child support laws are more equitable than those in some other states, the odds are still stacked against non-custodial fathers. For example, claims are often made for sole physical custody of the child, not because it is truly in the child’s best interests, but because child support will decrease if custody is shared. We fight against this type of hypocrisy every day in our effort to level the playing field in custody disputes.
Connecticut Child Support Guidelines
The Connecticut Child Support Guidelines govern the amount of child support paid. Child support in Connecticut is based on the net income of both parents. The cost of daycare, health insurance and unreimbursed medical expenses are factored into the Guideline amounts. However, a departure from the Guidelines is possible if there are significant travel costs for visitation. Modifications of the original support order can be requested if financial circumstances change.
Contempt and Enforcement of Child Support
We help men cited for contempt for failing to pay child support. Such charges are often a result of a significant change in the father’s circumstances, caused by serious illness or unemployment. If you have fallen behind in child support because of a changing financial situation, we can help by petitioning the court for modification of support orders.
