Legal Answers
Q. Does Tennessee not consider how much you have to pay out to live before taking child support out? Rent, phone bill etc.
A: The short answer is "no"- as the previsous answer indicates, living expenses are considered, and that is part of the computer formula, BUT the support is a priority expense. The computer determines the amount you pay, and it is up to you to figure out how to live on what is left.
Q. Is a parent considered "current on child support" if there are arrears?
A: No, his is not current. If he was current the arrears would be "zero."
Q. If my ex and my son still live with me after the divorce is final. When do I have to start paying child support?
A: The "parenting plan " form which is part of your divorce papers has a section on child support. The form has a section where the parties choose the date- In summary, you've got to review the divorce papers and see what they say. If the section was not filled out, generally court order become effective on the date the ordier is signed by the Judge and filed with the court clerk.
