Visitation Credit for Child Support

Visitation Credit for Child Support

Under Missouri law, the noncustodial parent can claim a credit against the presumed monthly child support obligation if the supported child spends enough overnights with the noncustodial parent. Making an accurate calculation can be quite complex when additional factors come into play. Be sure that you have an experienced St. Louis child support visitation credit attorney who can help you understand the guidelines and how they can work for you.

At Stange Law Firm, PC, we dedicate our entire practice to family law. We represent people throughout Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma in all aspects of divorce, including complex child support matters. We have a complete understanding of the law, and we work tirelessly to reach the most favorable possible outcome for every client we serve.

Working to Put You in the Best Possible Position After Divorce

The amount of the credit is dependent on the number of overnights the child spends with the noncustodial parent over the course of the year. With every case we take, we work to negotiate the most advantageous divorce agreement possible to put you in the best possible position as you move forward with your life. We stay focused on the big picture and consider the impact on the entire agreement.

If you are able to care for the children enough nights to get credit on child support, we will seek to negotiate an agreement that maximizes the benefits available under the law. Changes to the law in 2009 made it more difficult to take advantage of the child support credit by increasing the minimum amount of income the custodial parent must make before the noncustodial parent could take a credit for overnights.

We will conduct a complete review of your case and pursue every available option in an effort to protect your interests.
