Clarksville Child Support Attorneys
How is Child Support Calculated in Tennessee?
In Tennessee, each parent is expected to help with child support. The idea is the child should still be able to enjoy the same quality of life as they would have were their parents still together. Based on the Income Shares Model, each parent is expected to add together their total incomes and divide the support amount by how much time the child spends with either parent.
Child support payments may take into account such costs as:
- Education fees
- Health insurance
- Childcare expenses
Sometimes, a parent may argue that they are not liable for certain expenses. Having experienced Clarksville child support attorneys on your side can help you protect the child’s interests by making effective use of the law. Our team knows how to negotiate where possible and fight when necessary. Let us help you through your case.

Can Child Support Be Adjusted or Modified?
Just because a judge ordered a support obligation years ago does not mean the amount is still fair. In many cases, a parent’s situation has changed to where they either do not need to receive as much support or can no longer pay the amount.
Some situations where a modification of child support might be necessary include:
- Significant income change of at least 15%
- Child’s medical needs change in a major way
- Both parents agree to modify the amount
