What factors most affect child support modification requests?


As most Pennsylvania parents can attest, raising a child is a challenging but rewarding task. Most parents understand that they are responsible for financially supporting their children. If a couple separates or ends their marriage, the issue of who will pay for the children's everyday expenses inevitably arises. To ensure that a couple's children will have those expenses met after their parents split, child support issues should be discussed thoroughly to determine who will pay support and who will have custody.

Factors that affect Pennsylvania's child support formula


Whenever a court requires a noncustodial parent to pay his or her ex-spouse to meet their child's needs, it is not making an arbitrary or capricious decision, no matter what the supporting parent believes. Courts throughout the country, including in Pennsylvania, follow formulas that determine how much child support is needed and how much the parent can afford. By understanding the formula, parents can determine for themselves a fair and just amount that will meet their children's everyday expenses.

At any rate, child support remains a parent's responsibility


Raising children is always accompanied by financial costs and every parent, including those from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is already aware of that fact. However, when the time comes for both parents to decide to end the marriage, the financial obligation that accompanies raising a child, which is child support, can become a problem for the non-custodial parent.
