Child Support in Summerville, SC

In South Carolina, both parents share the responsibility to support their child until this child is emancipated, turns 18, or graduates from high school (which ever happens later). Unless the parties agree to another way to calculate child support the amount of child support is determined based on guidelines established by the South Carolina Department of Social Services. The parent that does not have primary physical custody of the child is who will be required to pay child support. 

Factors that are considered in determining child support:

  • Gross monthly income of each parent 

  • Any other children (other than step-children) in the home

  • The Child's portion of health insurance premiums paid by a parent

  • Work related day care costs

  • Extra-ordinary healthcare cost of the child

  • If the visiting parent has over 110 overnight visits per year with the child

  • Amount of alimony paid

The legal process can be incredibly confusing at times but it is our job to help you navigate those legal issues to get you the results that you and your child deserve.
