Child Support
Recent Article List
Each county in Ohio has a Child Support Enforcement Agency, a Juvenile Court and a Domestic Relations Court. The Ohio Revised Code, Title 31, establishes the criteria, guidelines and Child Support Worksheet to be utilized in determining appropriate child support. The Child Support Guidelines, in theory, take into account the cost of living including costs related to food, housing, transportation and medical expenses.
Of Boilerplate and Bonuses by Bertha Garcia Helmick, Esq.
Most divorcing spouses pay little attention to the boilerplate with all those little numbers required in Separation Agreements, Shared Parenting Plans, and in Decrees. And they may never even read the little print on the back of the withholding notices.
FAQs About Ohio Child Support by Dennis P. Levin, Esq.
According to Ohio law, a biological parent of a child, a man determined to be the natural father of a child pursuant to law, an adoptive parent, a parent who acknowledged paternity on a child’s birth certificate or a parent who acknowledged paternity in probate court has a duty to pay child support.

At any time during or after the divorce case, a parent may request that a child support order be modified. Modification is granted in order to meet changes in the needs of the children. For example, if a child develops special medical needs, the court may modify child support to require that a parent pay to meet those needs. It is also possible for the court to modify a child support order when there are changes in a parent's ability to pay the original support order. For example, if a parent loses his or her job, the court may decrease the child support payment to reflect the loss in income. In the alternative, the court may increase child support payments if a parent gets a raise or wins the lottery.
