What factors are considered in the calculation of child support?

tn Child support calculatorWith all Tennessee Family law cases, the outcomes are dependent on the specific facts of the case.  In Tennessee Child support cases the following factors can and will be used to determine the child support obligation of both Parents after a divorce case.

  • Father’s gross income
  • Mother’s gross income
  • Income total amount as it appears within the Guidelines;
  • Deductions from the Mother’s or Father’s income.  For example, alimony or children in the house not covered by this Tennessee child support order
  • Additions to the Mother’s or Father’s income. This would include but not limited to the receipt of alimony or other forms of income other than wages.
  • Any money paid out to the benefit of the child or children, such as health insurance premiums or work-related childcare costs.

Tennessee Child Support Calculator uses these factors to show what share of income is due from each parent. There are many Nashville Child Support cases where the child support order does not exactly follow these Guidelines. Deviations are the discretion of the Court and typically are included in an agreement that must be presented to the Court for approval.
