Child Support

Franklin Child Support Lawyer

At McGill Law, we understand that confronting the complexities of Tennessee child support can be challenging for parents. Child support is a court-ordered financial contribution from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent towards the expenses of raising their child. It is a vital issue in Tennessee divorce, legal separation, and for unmarried parents where paternity has been established. 

 In Tennessee, child support is not just an obligation but a fundamental right of the child to ensure their well-being and support their needs, including housing, food, education, and healthcare. It allows a child to benefit from the financial support of both parents, as the child would have if the family unit remained intact. 

Our firm can help you navigate the guidelines and calculation of child support in Franklin, the counties of Williamson and Davidson, and throughout the Middle Tennessee region. We have resolved thousands of legal matters and bring 10 years of practice to your case. Our firm handles child support in divorce, post-divorce, and paternity cases.

How Is Tennessee Child Support Determined?

In Tennessee, the non-custodial parent, meaning the parent who does not have primary physical custody of the child, is typically responsible for paying child support. This support is calculated based on state guidelines. The calculation uses the “income shares model,” which considers the income of both parents. 

This model aims to ensure that the child receives the same proportion of parental income they would have received if the parents lived together.
