Child support is fixed by law in New Hampshire, and is for the most part, a mathematical calculation, in which the incomes of both spouses are added together and then after offsetting certain standardized deductions, the resulting figure is applied to a table (updated annually for cost of living increases) and the child support figure is then established.

NON-Residential Parent - Child Support

The non-residential parent then pays the same percentage of that predetermined figure as is reflected by his or her income over total household income. While there are exceptions to application of this rule, it is, for the most part, applied rather rigidly and mechanically by our trial courts, and is in fact, required by state and federal law.

I can analyze your financial situation and seek, to the extent possible, to maximize your position on the issue of child support consistent with the requirements of our current law and system.
