One of our readers asked a question recently…

What Is The Highest Child Support Payment?

Here’s the response to that question about ‘child support guidelines‘.

Each state will have a maximum amount of support to pay for your children. Granted, this amount can be staggering at times, but the courts also have to let you live your life as well. Make sure you’re discussing your “true expenses”, and expenses you may have with your kids specifically if it comes down to the wire while in front of your family court judge.

You’ve probably seen the stories like I have where dad’s are left with $1.53 at the end of the pay period because of the child support deductions and income taxes upon that. That isn’t the norm so don’t be too alarmed. One of the best ways to combat this is to make a compromise with the other parent. Once agreed upon the judge may still need to sign off on it so the children are financially protected. You may also still be required to pay your monthly amount due through the child support enforcement agency although you had an agreement directly with the other parent.

I’ve seen a case where a father paid child support for two years through the mail directly to the mother. The mother agreed she had received the payments monthly and on time. However, because the states law required payments to go through their agency, the father ended up with an arrears judgement and ended up settling to pay the entire amount again.

The best option is to talk with a child support attorney near you. They most likely know what the judge in your area likes to see, and can offer some credible solutions to your case.
