Question: How Can I Show Reductions of Child Support?

Answer: When the oldest child reaches the age of majority, he or she typically is no longer eligible for child support.

Younger children will continue to be eligible.

The total child support amount will "step down" from the initial amount.

Family Law Software automatically calculates these step downs.

You will see a link to show the step downs on the screen where you enter data for child support, in the section towards the bottom on "Support to use..."

You also have an option as to whether you wish to use the calculated step down amounts in budgets and cash flow projections.
