Determining child support is often a relatively simple matter.
However, it is important that all the factors considered are accurate and correctly reflect the reality of your situation.
Determining the proper amount of child support can be straightforward in many cases, as the guidelines are dictated by Administrative Order 10 in Arkansas family law.
Complications will however quickly arise if all the information that goes into making the determinations are incomplete or disputed.
