Child Support Guidelines in Tennessee
In Tennessee, all parents have a legal obligation to support their children. In the event of a divorce or separation, the ongoing welfare and support of any children involved are of the utmost concern. In many cases, one parent may be required to make monthly payments to the other parent who has primary custody of the child. These payments are called child support.
Child support is calculated using guidelines that have been established by the state.
The court will determine the amount that is to be paid by considering a number of factors, including:
- The parents’ income
- The time that each parent spends with the child
- Whether or not the parent pays support for children from another relationship
Enforcing Child Support Orders
If a parent fails to make their child support payments, legal action may be taken against them.
Possible penalties for parents who refuse to pay child support include:
- Property liens
- Driver’s license revocation
- Bank account seizure
- Passport denial
- Tax refund confiscation
In the event that your ex-spouse is violating your child support order, contact our skilled lawyers immediately for assistance. Alternatively, if you owe child support and are unable to make payments because of a change in circumstances, our office can help you request a modification.
