Child Support And Spousal Support

Child Support And Spousal Support

Child Support

The amount of child support is determined under Ohio child support guidelines, based on the number of children and the parent’s income, along with a number of other factors.  Child support is paid to the child support enforcement agency, usually by wage withholding.  

Spousal Support

Ohio uses the term spousal support, instead of alimony or maintenance.  Spousal support is awarded to help sustain a spouse during the pending divorce action or as a part of the final decree.  Some of these factors courts consider are the ages, earning ability and health of the parties, the length of the marriage, and the standard of living during the marriage.   Attorney Gigiano has successfully litigated child support & spousal support issues.  Call now to find out how he can fight for your right to fair amount of support in court.
