At Helzer & Cromar, we handle child support and spousal support concerns for people in Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia and Washington counties and throughout the Portland metropolitan area.
Oregon child support guidelines take various factors into account, including:
- The incomes of each parent
- The number of children in the family
- Existing child support or spousal support obligations
- Day care, medical care and health insurance-related costs
- The amount of time the children spend with each parent
- The parents ability to pay
Spousal support (also called alimony or spousal maintenance) is awarded less often than child support, and not at all in some cases. However, as with child support, a number of factors are considered. A sampling of these includes the length of the marriage; the financial resources and earning capacities of each spouse; the tax implications; existing support obligations from previous marriages; the expenses for a spouse to transition; and the contributions one spouse may have made toward improving the earning capacity of the other.
Many of the calculations concerning support can be overlooked by attorneys who lack the experience and knowledge. This can definitely impact your case.
