Whenever your case involves custody of a child, a child support determination must be made. In Maryland, there are Child Support Guidelines, which, if parties fall at or below a combined certain gross income per month, are presumptively accurate. However, there are often other considerations that must be made when running child support calculations, and if the parties fall into an “above guidelines” scenario wherein their gross monthly incomes, combined, are above the Guidelines amount, the analysis is more case-specific. Moreover, there are significant changes coming to the child support laws in Maryland as of October 1, 2020, and it is important to speak with Tracey about those at the outset of your case.
Child Support in Maryland is always modifiable, provided there is a material change in circumstances and it is in the best interest of the child. Tracey regularly handles child support modification cases, whether you want to modify an existing custody Agreement or Consent Order, or an Order of Court.
