Child support is one of the many topics to deal with when couples are getting a divorce or are no longer together and they have children to take care of. Sometimes, couples can work out a payment schedule that is suitable for the parties involved and that addresses the needs of the child needing support. However, if an amicable child support solution is not reached, the courts then get involved and make determinations about who will pay child support and how much.
