Understanding Virginia’s Child Support Laws

In accordance with Virginia law, each parent is obligated to provide financial support for their children unless legally released from doing so. These payments, known as child support, are put in place to help reduce the strain on the custodial parent and the child in question should the parents divorce. Child support can be established during a divorce proceeding or otherwise.

There are numerous factors that may be taken into consideration when determining child support and payments schedules, including:

  • The parent’s income and ability to work
  • The combined parent’s income
  • The number of children that need to be supported
  • The custody arrangements of the parents
  • Work-related child care
  • Cost of health care coverage for the child

Of course, each case is different, just like each family is different, which means that there should always be an attorney present to help with child support cases. Our child support attorneys can work with your family and help you obtain support, or represent you as the parent obligated to pay the support.
