Navigating child support can be complex and confusing, so finding an experienced child support law firm is important. We understand your commitment to ensuring that your children are provided for and supported and that this can sometimes require a child support agreement lawyer. Iowa uses the pure income shares method of calculating child support orders, which provides specific guidance for parents as to what child support shall be depending on the combined incomes of the parties. If you are a non-custodial parent whose child visitation exceeds a certain number of overnights, you may be eligible for an extraordinary visitation deduction.
If you can demonstrate a legal obligation to pay child support to other children, you may be entitled to the Qualified Additional Dependent Deduction. There are also specific methods for taking into account individuals with fluctuating income, business expenses, overtime pay, or a second job. Dickinson Bradshaw has experienced child support attorneys in Iowa who have a firm understanding of Iowa’s child support guidelines. Our family law attorneys will analyze clients' paystubs, tax returns, and W-2 information to calculate child support obligations accurately and fairly.
