Divorce is the disassembly of a legal contract the division of assets and the legal signing of responsibility for property that can not be physically divided. No judge or parent can split children in two, physically or emotionally. Though Wisconsin child custody and child support laws can be complex in determining the monthly child support payments and welfare of your child, specific factors that prioritize the well-being of your child are considered. The following factors help determine the monthly child support you or your child’s other parent must pay:
- The number of children you both have together
- The other parent’s yearly gross income
- Your yearly gross income
- The child(ren)’s placement schedule
Our Wisconsin Child Support Calculator can help you understand what to expect for your child(ren)'s monthly child support.
