Aspects Of Calculating Child Support In Missouri

In the state of Missouri the specific amount of child support to be delegated is based upon certain factors that are found under §452.340 of the Missouri Statutes. This specific criteria that is used to specify the amount of child support payments are:

  • The financial requirements of the children
  • The financial resources of each of the parents
  • The children's accustomed standard of living
  • The children's physical and emotional needs
  • The child care costs of the custodial parent
  • The legal and physical child custody arrangements

In a divorce proceeding the parent that does not have the majority if not all of the custody rights is usually the one thatwill be paying the child support to the other parent. In most child support cases, these payments will be structured to be paid each month until the children turn18 years of age. There are some occasional circumstances that may require the child support payments to continue on past the age of 18, for instance if an agreement for support throughout college has been established.

Child Support Modifications

The modification of child support payments is often a necessary process after a divoce. If one of the parents financial circumstances change and they are not capable of paying as much as the established payment in the divorce, or if the receiving parent needs to get the payment amount increased a modification of the payment amount may need to be reworked in court.
