Guidance and Reassurance for You and Your Family

In Louisiana, child support plans are determined by state guidelines. These child support guidelines account for a number of factors including your own income, spouse's income, the needs of your children and more.
However, there are factors that can alter child support plans. We will help you understand whether or not a deviation is justified. Changes may involve the following:
- Existing support obligations
- Extraordinary medical expenses
- Extraordinary community debts
- A change in the child's needs
- Total or partial disability
In most situations, Louisiana child support plans last until a child turns eighteen, unless they are still in high school, in which case, it will terminate upon graduation or the child's nineteenth birthday. While there are no obligations to pay child support to a child in college, children with special needs may be entitled to child support beyond the age of eighteen.
