Tulsa Child Support Attorneys

Compassionate Legal Assistance for Child Support Issues

Every parent has a duty to financially support his or her child. Like all other states, Oklahoma has enacted laws to protect the children of divorced or unmarried parents through child support provisions. Child support is generally given to the custodial parent by the non-custodial parent. It is also a common order for a parent who earns more than the other parent to provide this support so that the child’s needs may be met in the same manner as before the marriage ended.

Child support can become an extremely contentious issue between two parents. You may need help in determining the child support amount you will receive or be required to pay. You may also need an attorney to help you enforce a child support court order. These situations can be addressed and handled by a Tulsa child support lawyer at Hensley and Associates, PLLC.

How is Child Support Determined in Oklahoma?

The amount of child support is determined by a basic guideline set up by the state of Oklahoma. This guideline involves a mathematical formula that takes into account the gross income of each parent. The support amount is a percentage of these incomes, which is then split based on various factors.

Factors considered under Oklahoma child support law include, but are not limited to:

  • How much time each parent spends with the child
  • The number of children the couple have together
  • Whether child support is paid for other children from other relationships
  • The cost of daycare
  • Health insurance costs

Generally, child support payments are required to be paid until the child turns 18 or until they graduate from high school.

Child support payments are intended to help pay for:

  • Housing
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Medical and dental needs
  • Transportation
  • Education
