How is child maintenance worked out?

Is child support based on the primary guardian's income as well as the non-custodial parent's income or just based on the non-custodial?

Child maintenance is typically calculated by considering both the income of the non-custodial parent (the one not living with the child) and the needs of the child. The aim is to ensure the child receives financial support to cover various expenses. The specific formula or method can vary by jurisdiction, but it often involves assessing both parents' incomes and allocating a portion based on the child's needs. It's not solely based on the non-custodial parent's income; the goal is to share the financial responsibility based on the overall financial situation of both parents.

So many factors are considered by a court of law in determining child maintenance considering the peculiar circumstances of each case. These factors are based on the peculiar facts canvassed by the parties to the case. A lawyer, after consultation with a client, knows the facts of the case and is in the vantage position to place them before the court for adjudication.
