In Connecticut, we follow a set of Guidelines that help us to determine parents’ child support rights and obligations. While the Guidelines seem easy enough to understand, the smallest mathematical error can have a drastic impact of the calculation of one’s child support rights/obligations. Moreover, there are a number of “deviation criteria” to consider, which many self-represented parties and even attorneys sometimes overlook. Understanding all of your rights and obligations before going to court is crucial – if you don’t know your rights, you could be stuck with an unfair child support order for years.
