How Wisconsin Family Court Determines Child Support

In any divorce or paternity case, the court issues orders regarding child support, placement and more. This protects the rights of children to maintain a relationship with, and receive support from, their parents. Child support is often determined by the placement schedule and both parents' income. Depending on this schedule, there may also be sharing of other child-related costs.

In Wisconsin, the family court generally follows state-mandated guidelines to determine support; however, questions still arise about:

  • The definition of income
  • Structure and method of payments
  • Defining other shared expenses
  • Insurance coverage and costs
  • Allocation of tax deductions

The attorneys of Gagne McChrystal De Lorenzo & Burghardt are well-versed in representing clients' interests in child-related matters and can assist with answering any questions you may have concerning child support and related matters.
