Child support is an important element in a divorce. This money is used to ensure the needs of a child are met in the even the parents do not live together. Your child should not suffer because you and your spouse can no longer maintain a healthy marriage.
In South Carolina, child support is determined according to a set of guidelines set forth by the state. Your income will be used to calculate how much support you will need to pay or how much your child will receive. If you and your spouse are willing, you may deviate from these guidelines and create your own child support agreement. The court will also require the parents to divide the child’s medical expenses in proportion to their income.
