Devising a workable parenting plan for your children can be rather difficult. One thing that can be hard for parents to understand is that they can't have their own way on everything. Taking the time to ascertain what is in the best interests of the children can be beneficial in these cases. There are some points that you will do well to remember as you go through this process.
Child support is a way for a noncustodial parent to help pay for the expenses of the children because it isn't right for one parent to shoulder the entire financial burden of the kids. For the most part, the child support is ordered by the court, which means that the paying parent must cover at least that amount. It doesn't mean that it is the maximum that the parent can spend on their children.
