RI Child Support Laws

In Rhode Island, both parents are obligated to support their child, which means that both parents are expected to meet their child’s needs. The non-custodial parent does this in the form of child support, while the custodial parent spends on the child directly.

The amount of child support owed depends both on the needs of the child and the parents’ financial situation. Courts are willing to modify child support arrangements if one parent is paying too much or if the funds aren’t sufficient.

How Do You Calculate Child Support in RI?

Child support is money the court orders one parent to pay the other to support their child. In support of this, Rhode Island has a formula for figuring out how much child support should be paid in each case.

Rhode Island child support guidelines are based on numerous factors such as:

  • Each parent’s income
  • Available resources of the parties
  • The needs of the child

Calculating child support based on the state’s guidelines can be precise. However, there are many factors that can affect the ultimate amount of support.

Understand Your Child Support Rights

Child support payments are usually made until children turn 18 or 19 if they are still in high school full-time. However, the court may also order that both parents continue to support a disabled adult child who is not self-supporting.

At Moyer Law, PC, we understand the nuances of how child support is calculated in Rhode Island. Because of this, we can help either the payor or the payee benefit from child support litigation. We educate our clients in order to make the child and alimony support laws work for them. So, if you need to establish a support order, enforce an order, or if you have been served, choose the Rhode Island child support attorneys at Moyer Law, PC.
