How Is Child Support Determined In Tennessee?

Both parents, married or not, are financially responsible for their child. A few factors go into this process, including:

  • The number of children
  • The combined income of both parents
  • How parenting time is split

The parent who cares for the child most of the time is the one who receives child support payments. The court approves the final amount. If you believe the payments need to be adjusted down the road, we can help you go back to court and prove your case.
