Wisconsin family courts use standards to determine the amount of child support you are obligated to pay or are entitled to receive for the care of your children. The standards, as established by the state legislature, consider the income of each parent, the placement of the children, and the number of children.

Appealing for Modifications
The child support standards may or may not take into account your family’s unique needs and considerations. This is where the services of a qualified family law attorney can truly help. With a wealth of experience, knowledge, and skill, our lawyers will attempt to negotiate a modification or deviation from the child support standards.
Factors to be given consideration in any deviation or modification include:
- Special needs of children
- Shared placement of children
- Large income disparity between parents
- Unique visitation agreements
After the initial divorce and child support order is handed down, our lawyers can attempt to obtain a modification. Furthermore, if support payments are in arrears, they can petition the court for wage garnishment and child support enforcement.
