What Is Child Support?
Louisiana has established presumptive Guidelines to be used in any child support proceeding. The Guidelines were enacted to address two problems: inconsistency in support awards and inadequate awards. These guidelines have been in place since 1989 and are well recognized by the Louisiana courts. The Guidelines are essentially a mathematical formula that calculates the amount of child support. The amount of support determined by the Guidelines is presumed to be in the best interest of the child. Although the formula is not difficult to use, there are complex rules on what constitutes income for purposes of child support calculation. We make sure our clients receive that proper amount of child support or ensure they pay only their appropriate amount.
