Child Support Eugene Oregon
What is Child Support Eugene Oregon?
Eugene Child support is a monetary contribution paid from one parent to the other for the support of their child or children and can include “cash medical support”, if private health insurance benefits are not available. The parent who has less time allocated with the child is usually required to make these monthly contributions. Under Oregon law, if a separating or divorcing couple has children, child support will need to be determined. Whether you need to modify an existing child support order; establish a new obligation or enforce payment of child support, we can help.
Upon entry of an Order establishing legal or physical custody, one parent will typically be required make monthly child support payments to the other for the benefit of their joint child or children. The Oregon Child Support Program has guidelines to calculate the amount of child support that is to be paid by one or both parents based upon the following:
- The gross income or potential income of both parents.
- The number of overnights each parent has with the children; and
- The child’s necessities (health insurance, child care or other expenses stemming from a child’s special needs).
