The Virginia Child Support Guidelines

The Virginia child support guidelines create a mathematical formula that is utilized by courts to compute child support awards. While the formula is relatively straightforward, there are a number of issues that can make the calculation of child support complex for individuals who are not represented by knowledgeable counsel, including:

  • Calculation of income in cases involving self-employed spouses
  • Imputing income to voluntarily unemployed parties
  • High child care costs resulting from a child's illness, disability or physical impairment
  • Treatment of seasonal income or bonus pay

Child Support Modifications

Have your circumstances changed significantly since the time that your last child support order was entered? Have you been laid off from your job? Has your spouse just received a significant pay raise? Have your child care costs changed significantly? Whether you are seeking additional child support or believe you are paying more than what is required by law, attorney Laurie Crawford can help.

Laurie can perform a guideline child support calculation on your behalf to determine how much child support you should be paying or receiving. If you have grounds for a modification, or if you need help opposing a child support modification, Laurie is pleased to offer her assistance. She can make all necessary filings with the court, negotiate on your behalf to seek a resolution of your child support dispute, and vigorously protect your rights at any necessary hearings.
