Child Support

Child support in Wisconsin is determined by a percentage of income standard. Support guidelines and formulas determine a threshold amount each parent is expected to contribute to the support of a minor child. The standard is almost always applied, although the law provides an opportunity to deviate from the guidelines based on specific circumstances of a case.

Parties with high incomes, self-employment and incomes which fluctuate for reasons such as commission compensation, overtime, bonuses and production-based pay require careful analysis. This is to ensure that child support amount is set fairly for the payer of support, the recipient of the support, and in the child's best interest.

At Pines Bach, our family law group understands how child support, be it the amount paid or the amount received, can impact a person's finances. Our years of experience and knowledge of child support guidelines allow us to provide clients strategic advice tailored to achieve a fair outcome in child support matters.

Many of our attorneys are regularly honored by being included in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America as well as receiving AV Preeminent* ratings from Martindale-Hubbell's peer-review rating system, the highest available rating.
